because I don't know squat about drywall finishing, and it sucks big time! Don't mind hanging drywall, but when it comes to finishing it, I might as well just dump the new bucket of drywall compound upside in the middle of the kitchen, and start throwing globs of it at the walls. Out on the construction field, I watch the finishers just put the stuff on, no drips, runs, or globs anywhere. Me? I have more on the floor or on my pants than I do where I want it.
Anybody have any tips to applying the compound without all of the mess? I tried goggling the method, and watching youtube videos, but then I go and try their techniques, and only get pi$$ed off even more!
At this rate, I'll end up using five 5 gallon buckets to finish a 12' x 10' room. I'm willing to bet Bob Villa or Red Green could do it better than me, and that's just sad!
