Hello Linda, and welcome to the forum. Please Thank your husband for his service to our country for us. It looks as if they pulled off the peeling paint as well as some of the drywall paper covering. This is not going to be an EASY fix, but it IS a DIY project that the guys here will be happy to assist you with throughout the entire process. There are a few different ways you can proceed with this, depending on your desires and budget.

Lol yeah and their boys 6,8, & 10. :)

:( i know its not going to be an easy fix. I hot an estimate for someone to do it but moneys tight right now.

Tools are not an issue. My father recently left my mother and i have all of his that filled a 2 1/2 car garage.

My daughter scraped of the paint at Nana's house, made real pretty pictures! LOL

Can you give us wider shots of the bathroom?
Any ball park on budget?

BTW Love your name, although it is not true you had enough of a clue to get help. That is the best start.

First off, lock up the kids( at the least):eek: bad, bad children:censored:
Apply Gardz to the damaged area
Skim coat the edges with joint compound, let it dry, sand,clean dust off, repeat skimming, sand, clean.

What I would add is make sure all the loose paint is off, and sand down the edges of the paint, when you skim coat put your joint compound past the edge of the existing paint so it feathers out and is not thick then sand, prime , paint.
When it comes to sanding the compound the best thing to use is a drywall sanding sponge which you can get at HD or Lowe's for a couple $$. They are fine on 1 side and a little coarser on the other side. One thing I should add is make sure your compound is dry before you sand, and it may take 2 coats of mud so don't get upset if the 1st doesn't turn out perfect it's not hard to do over. Please thank your husband.

I know control of the wild things is out of the question but maybe the patching part will help.It wont do much good to patch it up and have the holy terrors just rip it out again:eek:

mae-ling 10-09-2012 11:24 AM

They might not be holy terrors, just kids. It's part of how they learn.

It's difficult to explain how to do this.
1)coat or the surface that need to be repaired, at his point dont worry too much about the hard edge to the old surface. the hardest part of this is the bubbles you will get from the wet mud soaking the loose paper.
2) wait for the first coat to dry, you will see the blisters popping through.
3) take a razor knife and cut the blister out and keep repeating the coating until the blistering stops. Sometimes the blistering is so intense that removing them is next to impossible..if this is the case what I do is start scoring across the blisters instead of cutting them out. when I say scoring I mean cut X's over the effect spots. what comes lose pick it of....imagine embedding the lose paopaer in with the mud, this is basically what you are attempting to do.
4) keep following these process' and eventual the fix will come.
