  2. In my case, the drywallers placed drywall over the thermostat wire. The plumbing team found it. lol. they cut open the drywall, left to right, 6 feet long. Made a 6' hump. Six feet. I started sanding their durabond off to level it. Trouble is, I ran into paper tape, so i stopped. It has a noticeable hump about 6 feet long.
    I bought a 12" knife to mudd it over. Any suggestions?

  3. LOL my whole home is filled with crappy DIY jobs like this :') Slowly learning how to fix each weird choice by previous owners :') #1 mystery has been- why did the previous owners slap on an 8 inch diameter, 1/8 inch thick patch of drywall mud over a nail hole??? They're EVERYWHERE. Luckily the paint underneath it is adhered poorly to the primer so the paint-drywall mud-paint sandwich scrapes right off

  4. Wonderful! But where are the drop cloths? I dread drywall work due to the pervasive dust. Thanks so much for your help- Best video I've seen on the subject of repairing a poorly done job.

  5. Hey kilted guy! What do you do to get rid of spackle spots once you painted over them with one coat of paint?

  6. Could you have the video of this with the so called mudding of this in regular speed?

  7. Old school is the best school.

  8. they should have hung the drywall horizontally to go with the incoming light.

  9. Someone did a bad repair on my drywall and then applied a primer. How do I remove the primer to fix the bad repair?

  10. COULDNT u just sand the butt joint flat, than coat one more time? if necessary

  11. Iā€™m watching a second time.. you are good.

  12. You are awesome. Thanks for showing me.

  13. The contractor did a bad job with the seams. I can't look at it anymore, and I am ready to fix it myself.

  14. I like bumpy spackle gives the house character šŸ‘

  15. So you don't need to prime before you spread the mud over the paint?
