Ugh... roof leaked... how to fix paint?


I had a roof leak right after I painted my bedroom... the water tracked along to a seam in the sheetrock and created a series of bubbles in the paint....


The leak has been fixed, but now I want to know how I can fix the bubbles without it looking like doody.

Thanks in advance.

Scrape, sand or otherwise remove loose paint
Skim coat if needed with joint compound
Prime with STAIN KILLING primer as if you do not it will most likely bleed through ( Bin, or Zinsser oil based primer, Kilz original oil)
Paint
