Again let’s get all the old paint off of there all right leave that one intact there we go ready to go now generally speaking no remember the last time I saw a wall that was full of pictures I had nails in it every single nail missed a stud look at this hey we scored about a thousand all right so once we got all of our wall you know prepped up and we’re ready to paint we have to prep our wall remember professional results it’s all in the preparation so yes we’ve removed all of our cover plates we’ve got our paint here but we have to fill our holes and check for little dents and imperfections because until we make the wall surface perfect there’s no sense adding paint paint only puts lipstick on the pig and if you don’t want to be painting a pig fix the wall here’s a secret I’ve seen a lot of different things from done for a lot of different people there we go classic damage right and I’m just wiping it with my hand the 501 tool this is used to clean a brush this is used like a screwdriver this is a scraper this is designed to dent it’s like a little mini hammer the drywall is generally pretty soft so what you do is you press that into the hole and to give it a turn like that and you create a nice big dent and you’ll see it because it actually marks the paper all right every time you see a nail hole you want to do a dent like those two things it creates a void that needs to be filled which is really easy to do with the drywall compound most halls are you stick a nail in the surface explodes a little bit as well.
So if you just pull the nail up and then wipe it down or or try to fill that you get a little bumps everywhere okay and it doesn’t feel well so just give it a bit of a turn if there’s four or five of them do four or five times this is not about speed this is about perfection okay once you’ve prepped your surface and you’ve done it right the first time when you paint these walls that you’re gonna come out absolutely gorgeous brand-new darling now here’s my next secret when you’re repairing dry wall surfaces there’s a ton of products on the market that I like use this to fix your holes most of them are junk because they shrink when they dry or they flash when you paint them which means that you put that compound on and you sand it and then you paint two coats and you come back a couple days later and in certain lights you can still see the patch shining through the paint it’s called flashing no a little bucket of some pink stuff that turns white for you it’ll work but you got to add an extra step of painting to prime those patches which is a real frustration if you’re trying to get something done in a hurry the last thing you want is three layers of paint that has to dry that’s just nuts.
