aka the second bedroom in a two bedroom condo.
This is how we get ready for paint boys and girls.
Well ... it's how I did it anyway.
First screw off the drywall that the hacks effed up the first time around.
Popped screws and sheets that rattle on the studs can't be good.
Remove the window hardware and scrape off the flaky stuff.
It will all get sanded and the holes from various curtain/blind deals will get filled.
Fix the lousy taping with a coat of mud on the joints before the skim coat.
Fill in any corner bead that the original craftsmen only put two coats on with pan knives ... dirty fockers.
I'm glad it's only one room.
Oh BTW, if this was orange peel, texture, knock down or anything other than a slick finish I'd just be stuck with whatever crap those putzes left me. Give me slick finish or give me death!
