Wall Mural replacement - opinions ???


This might be a better place to ask. I just ripped out an old mural to replace with a new one. Are the 2 beams sufficient to simply add new sheetrock or do I have to brace the moulding pieces on each side somehow as well. THANKS

You should be okay with the studs ---the short cantilever will work with normal drywall---

I see no easy way to add a nailing piece behind the tile work---

Pack any gaps with easy sand 20 minute (powdered drywall compound.)

Run a couple horizontally top and bottom between the studs to give you a nice nailing ( or screwing) edge. You should be able to get a 2x into the left side and screw into it thru the existing stud but it looks like theres a pipe in the way on the right. Maybe you can pack it out with a strip of 1x?
This will all serve to make replacing it in the future easier.

I assume that is not a wet area----if it is inside a shower---come back----

Thanks for the responses. This is in a kitchen (dry area) but that is a shower you see on the other side. Shouldnt get the kitchen wall wet or moist I believe. Also the pipes are not really in the way.

One thought is to notch out the studs you see in the middle of each with my Rockwell and slip a 1x4 accross to the left and right behind the sheetrock / picture frame. Maybe even a dab of PL to adhere the 1x4 to the sheetrock. That should be enough support right ?

All stores have it --usg product--white paper bag---will have 5-20-45 or 90--on it--those numbers are the setting time---forget 5 minute--it gets hard while I mix it!

20 is good for small patches---often it is mistakenly called 'Durabond'--which comes in a brown bag and is used for exterior work,mostly--and is hard as concrete when it sets---

So I notched both studs in the middle which allowed me to slip in the 2x4s in the corners and then run a 1X4 accross. Lucky for me these are 2x6 beams. All I have left is to add a 2x4 top and bottom.
Time to tile again.

I hope not. I have never used easy sand either. Worse case I will use the matching caulk color of my Tec grout. Only the edges could crack but the caulk would definitely help. However, I am going to use grout first and see what happens.

That was completely unnecessary. Across the top and bottom are necessary, across the middle is superfluous.
