Thanks, now I know where to start
That could maybe work if I owned this place, but it's a rental. I'm leaving and I need to return it to the same condition I found it. I know the landlord will have to fix this. I'm fairly certain I can handle whatever it takes to get it done:
Bend the corner bead back so it's not in the way, fill with joint compound and then mold to match the texture.
Seems like know, the question is:
How do I match the texture? Is there some tool like a sponge or something that might help?
