Hi, I was wondering what type/grade of sandpaper I should use to sand this wall before I paint again. There was a burlap covering over this pink wall, and when I took the burlap off, there was a residue of the burlap stuck all over the wall. There are also sections where the burlap took a chunk of pink out of the wall. It is not too deep, but it may be noticeable after the sand and paint job. I guess I should sand, then caulk, then paint? I'll attach a few photos.

Thanks

Burlap as in wallpaper? if so, I'd sand with 120 grit and seal with Zinnser's Gardz. Most any interior oil base primer will also work.

Caulk is for sealing joints [like the wood trim to the wall] You'd use joint compound or spackling for holes - might require more than one coat [depends on the size of the hole]

ok thanks. It's not exactly a hole, it's just certain places where the pink paint has peeled off, showing the white paint beneath it. Only about a few millimeters thick.
