Default The Vent Thread

So I decided we could use a thread where we all just go to B!+# about painting.

Today sucked I removed about 50 foot of border in a master bedroom... It took about 45 foot of the Sheetrock paper with it, in 2"x2" increments. O how I love people that apply wallpaper and borders incorrectly... At least the HO was easy going, made me coffee and just let me work

Im in

Last week did a job (the "Mildew Room" that was too "yellow" for those who have been following) in which I let myself get haggled down $150 on a single room.

Showing up on the third day, I discover, that in addition to their Volvo wagon and Ford F-250, there is a Mercedes and a Porche parked in the garage.

Talk about feeling like this trade is for cheap laborers.

HO wanted a price for more work, so I told her I was booked till July and to call me then.

I got the job at the price I wanted because I said I'd remove that border. It was peeling up at the top and bottom too. It sucked but I'm getting paid for it

ah, this is obviously an example of that NOT being used.

BTW, Sully, what did you use to remove it with? (along with knowing what DOES work, it's helpful to know what DOESN'T work). And I assume it was VOV or border adhesive that was used

Why vent?.....sounds like a typical job.

I blew my ACL about a decade ago, re-injured it last summer, then tore my meniscus in January. Been wearing a brace and just now starting to feel normal.....this week I'm spending hours on my knees installing tile.....been popping Advils like TicTacs. (I really like TicTacs)

All good.....

I used piranha wallpaper remover, it was a little old. I usually have good results with it. Let it soak on the paper a bit and it comes right off. Usually tag it first. This border would not budge. It was on top of builders grade paint. I'm wondering if it was primed correctly... The paint seemed to just wanna peel off the wall. Anyway I sealed all of that torn up wall with gaurdz and ill skim it tomorrow then sand and prime when dry. Should come out nice

You are correct!

Apparently you shouldn't be taking those long term and I was on for 2 months.

I have a prescription patch to keep the swelling down as a replacement.

Cool. I barter from time to time. I think your system sounds better. Hours for hours. I'll try that.
