This post is fantastic! We now have TWO holes in our drywall that need to repaired similarly to yours. With the help of this post, I bet we can tackle it ourselves and save us a bundle! Thank you so much!!
We're currently sheetrocking and taping our place, boy, that is a skill i have ot yet mastered 🙂
Gosh, you take every project on with a no-fear kind of attitude and your step by step guide gives me the confidence to try this sort of project on a small scale. Thanks!
I have to say, I always want to rush the process to get it done…..tell your Dad, nice work….
Thanks for this! I thought about hiring someone to re-do my husband's not-so-good patch job (he used one of my cake boards, haha), but I think I'll be able to do it on my own now!
I must say, I really am grateful to your dad, and to you for always posting his instructions. He does a masterful job in all his handyman projects for you! But I notice that when it comes to some of the messy parts of the projects, it's you I see doing the work (like sanding!) Keep up the good work! Thanks!
I appreciate that your dad is willing to help you through your projects. He does the job right! I've also noticed that when it comes to the messy parts, you are the one doing it, like sanding! Love your blog!
GREAT post! I've been following your blog/reading your website for a long time now and I'm always inspired. You are my daily morning read — and a very important part of my routine! Thank you so much!
your dad is a diy genie!
Looks like a lot of work but the end result makes it worth it.
I am so happy for this post! Thanks for taking something daunting and bringing it down to a simple enough level to handle! So going to put this on Pinterest. 🙂
Simple for you to say 🙂
Great tutorial! It is so hard to be patient for projects to dry. 🙂
This is a great explanation! I'm totally saving this for myself… I mean my husband!! I tend to do this kind of house repair but he will if he has instructions! Thank you for helping me out! Great post:)
Who is your helper? Drywall is not easy!
hi thank you SO much for this post. I have a section of my kitchen ceiling that has a similar issue due to leaking bath / basin in bathroom above. I know I can do nearly everything myself … at least that's what I tell myself. I have your "can do, will do" attitude to life that drives my hubby mad! hehe.
I usually try to get things done while he's at work, so that there's no conflict; but I think this one he'll just have to deal with me ripping out the ceiling! 🙂 You're a star – I know what I have to do exactly now & your hints & tips for getting the job done right are invaluable – Thank you! love your blog immensely
Thank you for the step by step w/ the pictures; I have holes in my bathroom ceiling from a water leak that I have been dreading but you give me some confidence.
Questions: From an earlier flood in the bathroom the bottom edges of my bathroom drywall are damaged. Do you have any tips for replacing edges of drywall?
Also, my home is very old and it doesn't appear to have any straight drywall lines…I'm afraid this will make my repair job stand out as a repair…
This is a great article about repairing drywall. I will attempt to do this myself now. Thank you so much for sharing.
