In case you missed it, here are the previous links for this now-completed project:
After 2 applications of joint tape, 3 coats of joint compound, and a whole lot of sanding, the repair to the drywall tape crack is finally done! After touching up the paint on the wall [Benjamin Moore Violet Mist] it looks amazing. Still on my 2013 Projects list is getting the ceiling painted [Benjamin Moore Galaxy] and setting up tiny LED star lights across the ceiling. Sorry the “after” photo is so washed out – the daylight and the fact that the ceiling and joint compound are virtually the same color makes it hard for my camera to capture much contrast. I lucked out with the “before” shot! Looks like I took that photo late in the afternoon.
