I pried off a rotten piece of drywall panel from the arch of a doorway. The wood underneath is a little moldy, so I'll have to bleach/TSP the wood.
But anyways, my question is, how do I repair the drywall board and blend it in with all the other sections which are already painted?
I was thinking of cutting a section of drywall to size, then screwing onto the wood. Then I was going to simply mud the joints and edges where it joins the surrounding wall, and then apply paper, and then mud on top.
After the joint is papered and applied with mud, can i just prime and paint?
