Skim coating is always slow going. But I’ve managed to finish off one bucket of slop (the bucket I was using for the bathroom skim coat job) and moved on to a new one.
Ah, nothing like a fresh bucket of joint compound, eh?
Sorry for the grainy night photos. Most of the work I’ve been doing lately happens after I get home from work (I’m so glad that it’s going to start getting lighter again soon!). Charlie stays pinned to my side the whole time; if she’s not laying down in the room I’m in, she’s got her nose stuck right into my latest project.
For a full tutorial on skim coating after removing wallpaper, I created a detailed post during the master bath redo that will give you all of the specifics. Just click here for the lowdown (and alllllll of my long-winded advice). This is one of those kinds of tasks that was really fun to learn the first time around. And now it’s more like a task that you know you have to do to get to the good part.
