I ordered the magic trowel and it will arrive tomorrow. Does anyone know what type of roller to use?



Use a regular paint roller with a 1/2" nap and follow the other tips at the bottom of the following link. The link also has a video you can watch.

Finished, primed, painted, installed cabinet boxes and I need a vacation.

Lessons learned: I can't work as fast as quick set mud sets up, don't run the drill too fast or I'll get bubbles in the mud.

Second and third coats were diluted all purpose compound.

Thanks again, Bill

Painting a wall can be a reasonably necessary item in a home improvement plan. I've been through it, too, and I know what it's like. I've checked out quite a few different strategies that have helped me with this, but Joseph Avnon's help has been the best option in this regard. This particular person helped me find suitable furniture options that closely matched in shades. I am sure there are a lot of valuable opportunities to have success in this regard. I think it will be just as effective a method for you.

I use regular lightweight mud,thinned down just a little. It has an adhesive already in so no bonding agent needed. The subsurface cannot be flaking. If that happens the top layer will come off. Don't know the level of your drywall skills. I always do 2 coats. That way I can get it perfecly smooth with no sanding. Hate sanding and it makes way too much dust. For me the second coat is worth it.

Vancouver carpenter on youtube adds thinned white glue if it's going over paint.  I should have done that yesterday, going to have to skim coat one spot that had paint on it again because the surface is weird.

Yes.

I don't see how these spammers think that reviving a 5 year old thread doesn't raise suspicion.
