I love to paint and our old house was proof, each wall in that house had at least 3 layers of paint on them. The best part about painting that house was that the drywall didn’t need to be repaired and if it did they were only minor repairs. All I had to do was grab a few tarps, a paint brush and a roller and in a few hours I could have a room completely transformed.
Our new house is a completely different story. The drywall here has been neglected for years and any repairs that were done, were done poorly. Before I can even begin dipping my paint brush into a can of paint I have some major work to do.
Drywall repair has always been a little intimidating to me so I’ve always left that part of the job to my husband, he’s a general contractor so it’s always made sense for him to do it. However, the amount of drywall repair that needs to be done, my desire to get my house painted and my husbands work hours are not allowing me to pass the buck anymore. With the guidance of my husband, he’s been teaching me the different techniques for drywall repair, so I thought that I would share them with you, just in case you can’t pass the buck any longer.
