The bottom half of most of my hallway was covered with wallboard that was not only tacked on but glued as well. So now I have a perfect textured top half and a somewhat textured/glue/ripped texture with drywall paper showing bottom half lol! So now its repair mode time. Not anyone area exposed with drywall paper is so big that I dont think I can match relatively closely the texture pattern. I guess my question is how shall I approach all of this. I want to patch it, sand off glue/or strip with knife, prime and paint. But I would like to do it as right as possible since I went into this for the thought of improving the situation not making it worse lol! If it helps I can take a some picutres of this situation "digital camera" to get a better idea of what I am trying to describe. It looks as if originally the drywall was installed, a very thin layer of mud then texture and paint. I assume thats pretty much the norm? PLEASE HELP SOS SOS. Any recomendations would be so greatly appreciated and I will not abandon this post if that makes ya'll feel better!!!!
Thanks in Advance!!!!
I get some of the picture.Any wallboard that has its outer layer ripped open exposing the inner paper should be primed real well with oil base primer.Let dry, sand, then patch with drywall mud to smooth out.If you don`t, the water in the mud will bubble the paper and you`ll have to do it again.Sand,scrape,mud and elbow grease is all it takes.Do it right the first time and you will save money.90 percent of painting is prep work.
