Question

sheetrock issue - glue ripped part of it off


We're redoing our bathroom and ripped of the medicine cabinet and found that they glued it on pretty good...so some of the drywall came with.

Any idea on a proper fix?

What are your plans for the room? Are you going to cover that area up again with a mirror or another medicine cabinet? Tile? Are you going to try and smooth out the texture? Knowing what direction you are headed will help to focus the answers you get somewhat..

Seal with GUARDZ primer, apply 2 coats of joint compound, sand, then apply a matching texture, prime and repaint.

plastered it, and then brushed it with some paint in a can that was textured...and then painted it a new color, worked out well.

going to put up the new medicine cabinet tomorrow.
