How to Re-tape and Re-paste Your Drywall: Pt 2 - Sanding and Re-texturing

We let the paste dry overnight, and then it was back to work... using coarse-grained drywall sandpaper for the first pass...

And fine-grained paper for the second pass.

Tools of the trade

Home renovation chic.

The reason we were wearing masks.

Time to take a break while the dust clears...

Then it's back upstairs to vacuum up the loose dust on the walls and prep for the retexturing.

Retexturing... in a can!

OK, it took 3 cans.

But hot damn, that ceiling looks better...

Oh yes indeed.

Tomorrow: primer and paint, round 3.

Be the first to sound off!
