3 way switch problem.

All fixed now, thanks to all for the help. And now that I had to punch a hole in the wall, the wife wants to use this opportunity to repaint the entire room.

3 way switch problem.

what kind of devices are you using? because the kinds im familiar with ether the travelers are on the same side of the switch as one another and the common on the other side by its self or there directly across from one another with the common on the bottom of the switch. because if the sketch is the way you did it. switching the white & black on switch 2 should have corrected it.
