Attempt at Sanding
 
5 Attachment(s)

Ok... well I did give it a go on the sanding... used 100grit and maybe i started off on the wrong leg but I was told to use a palm sander and let me tell you... 30 minutes and and about 12 sqft seems like a long process...

ill try the wire brushes next...No pics that are any good of any of these areas...

but some progress that I have already made... my first rodeo on sheetrock so dont knock me too hard... (I just had to give it a try before I hired someone)

A Big Thanks To Everyone Here
 
1 Attachment(s)

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for both their contributions to this thread and all others on the site...

through experienced(more than mine) guidance and patience I have completed a couple rooms in my house restoring a decent looking texture and bringing peace of mind back to the home...

From this project I have acquired both new tools and new skills and to this board I owe most of the honor.

Thanks


The only pic that turned out worth anything is not all that clear but thought I would post some finished work... this room was covered with a sand textured paint (AWEFUL) now its got a knockdown finish...

thanks for all the help
