Working Behind Myself – A GOOD Thing!

The job I did this week went great. One reason? The original paper had been installed 10 years ago – by ME!

Because I had prepped the wall properly (floated smooth, sanded, wiped clean, primed with KILZ), the old paper came off easily, with NO damage to the wall. All I had to do was patch a few holes from nails and picture hangers. The primer was intact, and there was no need to reprime.

This is SO MUCH preferable to working behind another paper hanger, who cut corners in prep, or who didn’t bother to prime, or who used a latex primer.
