Default Never seen this before...

Did a bedroom this afternoon where the HO's 89 year old father had decided to "prep" for us. 20 year old daughters room with a good 10 years of backstreet boys and beiber fever poster holes EVERYWHERE. Poor old guy got his sparkling and grout containers mixed up. Yeah that's right, tile grout.

We have some close friends who have had me do a lot of painting for them over the years. He used to try and spackle the holes for me using the "more is better" technique. I finally told him to please stop since he was lousy at it and only made more work for me. We still chuckle about it.

Don't you love that, being able to come in and hang your jacket on their spackle job.

Yeah, looked like glops of wet toilet paper had been smashed onto the walls everywhere.

I had a lil ole lady a few years back that "helped me out" by spackling a good bit of a wall ahead of time. The stuff seemed very hard and I asked her to show me the container - concrete patch.

I just finished a bath that was papered by an 89 yo HO some 20 yrs ago and the Mrs. maintained the curling seams with various concoctions including vinyl adhesive and some goopy gel stuff. They were very sweet and "helpful".

More like making a funny. But if your asking for yourself the approach of coming out on PT might be a bad idea. Tough crowd around here at times

I think it might be harder for a person to come out as a Behr rep. Of someone in charge of pricing at SW!
