We’ve all been there.
You want to repaint a room in your house. You remove the trim, but maybe you (or your demo hubby) don’t score the trim and sure enough… the paint pulls the paper on your drywall right off.
Be honest, how many of you have just painted right over the torn paper?
You can’t see it, but I am raising my hand right now.
I admit it… and the paint job ends up looking terrible.
Those days are over, folks!
Please note: Obviously, the best thing you could do is to not have this happen. When removing trim, baseboards or anything that has been painted or caulked on a wall, score it with a utility knife. It will save you lots of time.
Step 1 – Clean up the paper
Using a utility knife, remove all loose paper from the wall. You can cut more of the paper off, that’s no problem, you just want to have clean lines.
Step 2 – Sand
I use my mouse sander, but you can also use sand paper and do it with a little muscle power.
