I recently removed the wallpaper from the bathroom, which left huge amounts of paste. I used DIF and a spackle knife to remove the glue. This resulted in alot of the drywall paper being damaged. I then sanded the whole bathroom to try to get the walls smooth. What should be my next steps to prepare the walls & ceiling for paint? Do I use joint compound or spackle? What type of paint should I buy? Please help!!!!!
I would use joint compound as it is easier to use on large areas. Once you get the walls smooth you will want to prime the entire bathroom with an acrylic primer and finish with 2 coats of a acrylic eggshell/satin or semi-gloss paint and if they have a paint made for bathrooms at the paint store use that as it will give you aded protection against mildew.
