Hello,
I just prepped my walls for paint (drywall repair, sanding and primed), I thought they looked pretty darn good until I did one final once over and noticed a few spots I hit with some more spackle. I sanded them but didn't prime the specific areas. I painted last night and you can see the areas I went back and fixed. What should I do now to correct that?:mad:

how big were these touch up areas? how many coat of paint did you put on? you may need to lightly scuff those areas then prime and paint.

you always need to prime any unpainted areas or it will look like yours does. i usually prime the touched up spots a couple of times.

I wondered about the second coat working with the first acting as a primer per se. I will try that first. I have to do the second coat any way because it is a darker color.
Thanks
