I have finally finished taping..........


I am finally done. I did four coat, with no sanding inbetween coats. I only sanded after the final coat.

I also did wet sanding. No dust.......
I found it worked well for me after some practice.

I now am about to start the trim. I plan on putting some type of moulding where ceiling meets wall.

I think trim and my creativity is going to be my best friend........

Thanks Atlantic.

It is far from perfect by any stretch of the imagination.

But I am a passionate and determined individual. I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing....................

I can't wait to post my finished basement.

I just don't want to spend more time doing corner bead. I think I have about had it with taping........, so I think I will put some sort of trim on them.
I will try to make it look like they were "intentionally" put there........lol

Depending on the type of trim you use, it may be easier to trim the corner without the cornerbead on.

Jerry, please tell me the one to avoid, because there is no way in that I will remove the corner bead.

I am open to suggestions.

What kind of trim were you looking to use? Something like this?
http://contractorservices.homedepot....c-a7dd8160ec2b
If so, it may not sit flat on the bead without being filled with mud.

Jerry, I can't get into that link to take a look.

Would trim that is put around a doorway, work?

I think I will go to Home Depot and see what would work. I am just really sick of mudding.

Try this link. Look at the corner mouldings.

I think most HD's carry AWM products.

Thanks Mark

Jerry, I did take a look at the corner moulding and I think that might work.
Only it may not be wide enough to cover the corner bead, and lay flat against the wall.

If a corner moulding doesn't work, then I may put trim on one side that may be a little wider so that it will lay flat and trim on the other side.

Thanks for helping.

Nice mud job YM!

A pro like you should be able to finish those corner beads in no time!

I wasnt gonna mention this but..... Those pic's were taken on Halloween night 33 minutes before midnight according to the time stamp.......

Did you notice the two floating "orbs" in pic one????
