In today's Part 1 video I'm going to show you how to repair drywall after removing wall mirror but first I'll need to scrape and chisel of the black mirror mastic blobs that held up these floor to ceiling wall mirror. Next, it was time to fix all of the torn drywall paper from removing the mirror glue by sealing it with a problem surface sealer called Gardz. Stay tuned for Part 2 where I'll show you the steps it took to apply the all purpose joint compound the the damaged brown paper first then I skim coat the entire wall by hand. So stay tuned!

Hey Paul, would love to see you do a video on skimming over the bathroom vanity wall after you remove an old mirror and having to deal with those big black glue globs that mess up the drywall after you remove the globs, it ruins paper and it leaves the now brown exposed and roughened paper with that weird texture. It is hard for me to cover up that texture with the mud, then the paper left behind under the old glue glob starts to ripple once it gets wet with the mud, then I ended up doing 4 layers of sanding to finally get it under control. When I was done with that, still looks not smooth, so I finally just skimmed across the entire 5 foot wall there to make it all go away. but I'm sure you have a lot better method of doing this repair more efficiently. It seems the paper behind the black globs is weakened and compromised, yet I don't think I want to cut that bad paper away with a utility knife either and leave that spot exposed without the strength of the paper there. what to do?"
