This is more of I just want to know thing. I am remodeling a bathroom of which I did not intend to re-drywall, but since I hate wallpaper and I spent two hours removing two layers of a small section I decided to gut it and start from scratch and spare the agony of pulling wall paper for good. My question it more of technique. How have you handled the mudding? I use the heavy premixed stuff in the pails and start with a small trowel and then step up to a bigger one and then one more step after that and sand in between coats and touch up as needed before primer. This method is painfully slow as I am not quick like the pros at this but have in all the rooms I have done I yet to find a crack in any wall joints I have ever done. What works for you. I am not going to texture this bathroom as I will do some type a two coat paint thing that looks kind cool but cannot think of what it is called. I left the ceiling intact and will have to do the best I can with it as the joint goes and if I am not happy then crown modeling will go up.
