    The easiest way I found is to purchase a spray texture. It will have directions on the can to achieve the style of texture on your wall.

    It should work just fine. Also sometimes it can be easier to replace a half or a whole sheet of drywall if the damage is too severe. It really depends on your circumstances.

    I have a huge hole from an electric fireplace that was mounted inside the wall. Will this baton trick work for a 1 ½ ft tall and ¾ ft wide hole?

    isnt hard to sand the quick set ive done a little bit of taping and that stuff is terrible to sand and the stuff ive use sometimes shine through the paint.

    That could be a whole other video. Hopefully some of our viewers could help out with your question too. I’ve seen people fill the joint with special mesh tape and then Thinset. And then caulk the seam along the tile once prime and paint are done. It looks better if you replace the drywall floor to ceiling though. You should be able to find more detailed instructions by searching for “drywall to backer board transition” Watch out for mold and be sure to check your local codes.

    What if my damaged d/w is adjacent to the shower tiles? I don’t actually have a hole but the d/w is damp due to compromised caulk at the intersection of the tub and tile. I can check to see if it’s wet behind the tile, but I’m curious how I mud the edge that is flush with the d/w behind the tile. ty
