It’s official. Fixing up the basement workshop reached project status this weekend when I picked up drywall and mud for the wall I’m refinishing there.
I was supposed to start working on the upstairs bedroom, particularly now that my cool new Speedheater infrared paint remover has arrived. All I wanted to do in the workshop was get some better storage, but then I found a wall finished in cardboard and I just couldn’t leave it alone.
Fortunately, finishing the workshop wall shouldn’t take a lot of time and it will give me a chance to practice my mudding skills in a very low risk setting. After all, no one will really see the workshop wall once the shelves are up and even the worst mud job beats cardboard.
Speaking of mudding, fellow housebloggers HammeredTV have a fun video tutorial on finishing drywall if you can handle a 70MB download.
