Duct Tape, Caulk and Dry Wall Mud Will Fix Anything
I have long known the many uses of duct tape. You see at an early age I was taught when in doubt try duct tape. Then I learned caulk will hide a multitude of things, especially paintable caulk. And now I have learned drywall mud is a miracle product as well. Do you remember the walls I destroyed when removing grass cloth and two layers of wallpaper? My hubby took mud and some sandpaper to them and TADA!
It’s a miracle of home remodeling proportions! I truly thought I had destroyed the room and it is his office.
Then my dear sweet dad primed the room and the ceiling.
Lovely green paint from Valspar -Laura Ashley Apple 3 for the walls and white ceiling paint will be next. Then at some point a window treatment in this fab fabric below. Can you believe I bought this on a remnant bolt some time back and it is going to work great for the office? So glad I have kept it!
The moral of this story? Next time instead of bringing the first time homeowner flowers or a bottle of wine just give them a gift basket with the three most important products for home owners: duct tape, caulk, and drywall mud. Well throw in the wine too, it will make the basket look nice and the new homeowners will probably need a drink at some point!
