Well guys, Thanks to all of your advice, the drywall finishing is going much better. Staying calm and relaxed seems to be the biggest advantage. Be surprised at how much better things go when you take time. Even my wife is impressed. I told her I owe it all to you guys here are Garden Tractor Talk, and she just looked at me and asked, "Really? I thought the site was just about tractors?" I told her we cover more topics than just garden tractors. Why do you think I spend so much time on there? I basically just got a look, and was told "Hey, whatever works."

 

I finally completed the second coat and will sand tomorrow morning. Thanks again for all of the advice and recommendations. I really appreciate all of the help!  :thumbs:

Glad to hear it is working out for you.  You should have shown your wife the thread.

Troy, I too am about to try my hand at mudding up the cielung I just replaced due to demo-ing it to install radiant floor heat. It should be an adventure ! I can plaster pretty fair, but this dry sanding stuff is makingme aprehensive.. I hate the dust.. So i may take my time and use the wet sponge for finishing like plastering.
