We are remodeling a bathroom. ALl drywall is down due to holes, patches etc. How do I make a nice, smooth 90 degree corner? I plan to paint only - this corner is away from any direct water.

thanks!

Hi AnneM,

When compounding inside corners, you do 1 inside-side at a time. After 1 inside-side dries, you do the other one. And you feather and repeat the process until you're satisfied with the finished results. Of course, sand between coatings as you need.

There is an inside spackling knife you can buy but I've never used one. It may be worth a try.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

Dear Anne,
Get the inside corner spackling knife. Before you mud the joint, use a painters caulk with a caulking gun. This is a little trick I learned from a 70 year old fellow. Run the caulk the whole length of the seam and wet a rag to wipe it flush. After it dries, use paper tape, not the sticky stuff .
Run a light coat of joint compound down the seam and place your tape on the seam. Flatten the tape down and add another layer of joint compound. Use the inside corner tape knife,( press hard) to finish the joint. After that dries, sand lightly and add a second coat. Sand again with 100 grit paper and paint.
Good Luck and Happy New Year,
Len
