Painting bathroom

Hi folks, I just finished removing wall paper from drywall.What are the proper procedures for preparing and repainting walls? What kind and brand of paint do you recommend?

first wash wall down with trisodiumphosphate (TSP) you dont want any glue or paper left if there is you can do one of two things : indent the problem area and the use mud to fill the hole (wipe on mud, wipe clean even with surface, let dry repeat 3 times) or scrap lightly till its gone. I indent the small one and scrape the big ones. now we look to our joints, only fix what is going to be out in the open to the naked eye, you don't have to spend time getting a joint perfect that is behind a mirrior or vanity, use a broad knife or trowell to coat the joint (top to bottem) this might not even have to be done! then check out your 3-ways and corrnors (3-ways are wher the two walls and ceiling meet) if ya have to coat them use a 4 inch broad knife and from top to bottem running down one side at a time (there are other tools for this but they can get expenecive) repeat till it's stright or good enough for you!! keep in mind less mud is less sanding but to little mud means ya probably didn't accomplish anything lol!! so now it's all patched and straight and dry, use a foam sander with a 100 watt light bulb to scrub away ridges and improfections, keep a shop vac on with a good filter for the dust, and don't breath it in!!! mask are cheep and lungs are not. it's sanded apply drywall sealer (general paint, cloverdale,beauty tone) all good stuff. sand walls (keep some mud with just a bit of your wall color in it to patch missed areas or sander flips) should be smooth as glass, check for and patch holes with colored mud, spot prime and spot sand, let dry apply paint.......let me know when your ready to paint and give ya some tips on that, hope this helps
