comment How do I apply the same texture to the bathroom wall after patching a hole?
Steven: what would you recommend for the bleeding issue of the blue pink through the light pink. I was thinking maybe I needed to prime the whole wall since I am priming all the spots (1/3 wall anyway)? And, how do I get rid of the brush marks the other guy left; McCormick says to lightly sand before painting. And, he mucked up the chair railing so I am sanding down and repainting. Mess. Please give ideas on all.

Called McCormick paints - said to spackle in bubbles; let dry; lightly sand. Apply KILZ (primer); lightly sand (100 grd), finish using 4/8" roller (3/8" was used). Can't remember if guy sanded after mudding (used quick drying mud). Area looks scraped and has little pitty holes. Maybe not sanded well or painted when mud not totally dry. Paint not covering well; light pink over darker blue pink; bleeding through. Don't like wide brush marks on edging (2" brush). I will use tape, edge with 1" brush, roller down to/over tape (he didn't use tape) for more texture than brush mark (my usual way).
