    Make sure to seal off the room before sanding with plastic sheets and
    masking tape. On the floor too. Also put a big box fan in the window, wear
    a mask and eye protection. I lost a refrigerator, laptop and desktop
    because that material got swept into the cooling fans and shorted them out.
    Drywall dust also contains elements that are hazardous to human health and
    causes a condition similar to asthma that can lead to permanent brain
    damage. I was completely ignorant to all this before I did sanding in my
    home and I’m still hocking up mucous with a chemical taste.

    I thought I knew everything about patching….i realized after doing ONE
    room that when you spackle a hole… the compound shrinks…. I just sanded
    and painted it !! I didn’t realize until it was painted that there was an
    indent…

    Awesome video. I’m first time home owner with little experience in this
    kind of thing. The house is old and has quite a few rooms with multiple
    layers of wallpaper which has resulted in tons of knicks in the walls from
    the scraper (until investing in a steamer). Looking at all the knicks
    started to make wonder if I should do wallpaper again or even texture the
    walls. Your how to videos make it simple for even a novice to understand.
    Thanks! :)

    I use a large wet sponge to sand down patches to a smooth finish, it also
    prevent the compound dust from flying everywhere also no need for a mask or
    eye protections…trust me it always works..got the tip from “This Old
    House Show”.

    tbh thats i believe your overkilling the spackling, or maybe i just cant
    see firsthand how many nicks there are, but anyways great job, do it the
    same way i do

    Hello again! Yes, there will be a texture difference. The difference all
    depends on the existing texture around the patch. If its thick or built up
    from several previous paint jobs, then you want to spot prime these areas
    with at least 1/2 inch nap roller at least 2 times to help build up the
    surface from smooth to a texture that is similar to the surrounding
    texture. What’s your name?

    Yes, it looked so easy, all I could think of was I need those two guys who
    really know what they are doing, measuring and cutting! I doubt any of us
    could do it so well. Then I read below and really had to laugh: “hooveee1
    year ago: “I was laughing my head off, how every panel fits at once.The vid
    shoulda shown how the guys swear on every other fucked up measurings and
    curse the designer….well done anyway”

    And yet is really IS “well done.” Can’t wait to try it ourselves! If you
    would send us a crew…
