How to Skim Coat Walls


Hello, I am new to the forum and am in need of some advice. I have 1986 townhouse that I am redoing the walls on. The first owner placed wallpaper over what I am told is raw sheetrock. I have removed the wallpaper and repaired the small issues from the removal process. My question is how do I quickly, easily and effectively skim coat the walls so I can then sand and paint? I have 2 guy helpers for this Fri and Sat so I am hoping to do as much as possible while I have the help.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Vicki

Hi Vicki!

Take a look at this and see if it sheds any light on the subject. If you potchky around the article a bit, you'll come across additional links that may prove helpful. You can probably Google numerous such How To's. BTW, I'm not hawking Mr. Brown's ebook here. Just figured it was a reasonably accurate indicator of what you're getting into.
