New home owner, my garage has a basic drywall finish - ie nominally sanded joints. There are also water stains all over the dry wall - I'm going to guess they washed their cars inside the garage with a house or otherwise had a hurricane with the garage door open :)
I want to improve the look and brighten up the garage. MY plan:
- Remove loose drywall paper and crumbs
- Use joint compound to fill holes and cover nails (nothing big)
- Do a very basic sanding job on fills and anywhere there is a large bump (ie like the joint tape in the photo)
- Roll on some while latex primer (garage open during painting and overnight thereafter)
- Declare victory
Is this reasonable approach? The drywall is all totally dry and feels firm everywhere I've pressed.
