Time to head out to Grandma's house and do some more work on her wall. The first coat of drywall has been completed and cured over the weekend. Now for the fun stuff. Most people fear drywall like it's the black plague. Fear not, for it isn't that bad. After the first coat is dry just take a mud knife and knock off all the high spots (assuming you didn't go ballistic on the first coat). Then go ahead and 2nd coat right over the top. The key here s to make the seams about 18"-24" wide and just thin enough that you can barely see the tape through the wet mud. If you catch a chunk of something and get a huge line through the 2nd coat it's okay. Leave it alone. Don't go back and try to fix it to be perfect or you'll just screw it up even more. Then let it dry.
I spend the rest of the night with Katie just doing some random house chores and working on this blog. Sometimes a little antique roadshow in the background is just thing I need to finish the day.
