Will this work to repair areas above kitchen counter & wall cabinets? Currently no cabinets or counter but space between where they will be does not look very good & do not want to have to replace the drywall + all that is involved. About 88" L & 21" W but not as wide under window (36" L & about 10" W)
Asked by: Bets
Yes. May take a few applications, careful spreading, and block sand with 180 - 220 grit paper until you have fill all the imperfections. As with all drywall repair, wear a mask and cover as much area as possible as the sanding dust is very fine.
