I'm redoing my whole upstairs. Paint, carpet and new bathrooms. I'm not doing all of the work, just the painting. I removed two ugly mirrors from the upstairs bathroom, and it looks like they've been painted around several times. The walls aren't smooth underneath and they look ugly. I don't plan on putting them back up, so I want to smooth out the wall so it looks nice and flat.

What do I do for that? Do I use plaster? I konw nothing about it, but I know it looks like garbage now. I put some spackly over some parts with a putty knife, but I need to do like the whole wall over again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! It's just drywall, nothing fancy.

You need to use drwall mud as it is better for larger areas and apply it with at least a six inch knife.
