A Quick Sheetrock Finishing Tip

Wish I’d thought of this one years ago! 

We have a crew of pros hanging some new sheetrock here at the old farm house, and something one of the guys did the other day caused me to have an “AHA” moment (along with a “duh – why have I never thought of that?”) 

I’ve always struggled with taping and spackling those doggoned corners, even with a good corner trowel, but this simple trick makes it much easier. Just tape the horizontal “crown” corners where the walls meet the ceiling, and let them dry overnight. THEN come back and tape the vertical corners the next day, and the job will be way easier, with a lot less fuss and wasted time.

Live and learn… 

God bless you,
