Lets do the math on this....
Drive time getting to this job = $50 hr. gas. vehicle expenses. wear and tear. time spent not at another job.

3 hours min. making the finishing look right at $50. Materials that need to be purchased also included which can be around $20

another hour or so prepping for to spray the texture to completion and clean up.$50

so far we are past the $225

My math seems pretty good so i think it is fare.

Mind you i dont know what all his insurances cost.. plus his drive time.

Remember you are paying this mans bills...his house, car. vacations he takes. Its how he makes his living. I assure you it should take him more than just 2 hours to do this unless he is su[er at what he does.

Texture wise- spraying with a can will not match at all! the knockdown can just doesnt do the job good enough. The texture you have was probably applied with a hopper and regular bucket mud as the way the dots appear and its spacing in my opinion. So id say just go with the professional.

Can I use caulking instead of the tape?

When using tape I end up having a noticable hill shape when I feather the spackling leading to numerous resanding/respackling.

Follow my advice-HIRE the guy for 225 if its not to late. if you already started, still hire the guy for 225 as you can see you think there is a mild hump created by the tape. all your walls have this mild hump, however you do not know it is there because it is finished by a professional...

Here that would have to be taped to meet firecode, even if you trim it out I believe. Worth looking into your areas codes. Unless you filled the gaps with firestop or something but that doesn't make a lot of sense.

PS 225 or whatever it was to tape and texture that is pretty freaking cheap, if he can do a good job I would pay that without thinking twice about it.

Ok here is how far I got. I bought some knockout spray ( figure I try it out). The only thing I have to wait for is the paint to dry. Interior eggshell latex which is the original drywall color. I hope the paint matches. So far it looks too white.

Looking pretty good----you may want to repaint the whole wall--touch ups are hard to pull off on new work---matching old work is nearly impossible.

At this point I'm not sure how to proceed. Paint the entire Rec room or move my pool sticks over and cover the white lines up?

it would be too noticeable since I have many other walls in the rec room that wouldn't match.

"many" other walls in my rec room.

I used the exact same paint that is on the walls now. I had to patch up the lines so more than likely it's impossible to match.

As you can see I would have ALOT of painting to do in my rec room. Is there a way I can take a drywall sample to a paint shop to match the paint better?
I'm positive it's eggshell paint since that's what I've used in the past for touch ups.

Any other ideas to make this space look better other than moving the pool sticks over?
