    i got out of work early due to the snow

    so, now i'm going to sand off my walls that i repaired last night. I made some holes in the sheetrock moving in couches and stuff in my stair well.

    i pathed 'em up last night. let it dry
    time to sand...

    not another Pissedoffsol project.....this thread may end up to be 46 pages...5000+ posts....4,900,336 veiws....and the real project might not get done til Sept 23, 2007.....

    it always starts with the small easy looking thing to fix..... :ph34r:

    at least it was with my kitchen...the wife just wanted to rip off the wall paper...and the wall came with it...so I had to tear down and rebuild the whole wall..... :cry2:

    I might not be EXACTLY the same. It's tough to part out a condo.

    lol you guys suck....

    it was cake, thanks to my electric Ryobi sander :p

    i used 120 grit. probably shoulda used 150... but 120 was fine... just had to be a little more easy on it.

    the pics are hard to tell a difference in anything... but its all nice and smooth now.



    oops-forgot the pics :p

    Paint it either a light tan or maybe a calm green, hmm that would be nice.

    god i hate trying to wet sand spackle...
    never works out well
    and i really hate those wet sanding sponges, they suck ass...

    that could have been done by hand in the amount of time it took you to get out the sander, but if i had a power sander i would use it too...
    you gotta justify having tools right?
