Hiding a White Line

The walls of this bedroom were textured, so, to smooth them, I troweled on white joint compound. To get a smooth and snug “nest” for the wallpaper to lie in, I like to wrap the mud just a little onto the ceiling, and smooth it down with my finger. This creates a good grip for the wallpaper – but it also leaves just a little white compound on the tan ceiling.

I didn’t want that line to show all along the top of the new wallpaper, so I got some craft paints, mixed up a color that matched the wall, thinned it a little, and used a small brush to swipe it on. White line – GONE!
