Fixing a Nail Pop in the Sheetrock- A Debbie's Quick Fix
My quick fixes have helped many people with small jobs around the house. if you have seen sheetrock screws that work their way back out of the wall and make unsightly bulge then this is how ot correct that. I saw several on a new home walk through the other days and could have fixed them for the builder if I had had my supplies with me.
What you will need for Debbie's Quick Fixes How to Fix a Nail Pop:
1. A hammer 4. Fine sandpaper
2. Spackle (I like the pink quick-drying kind) 5. Small paint brush
3. Putty knife 6. Perfectly matched wall paint
Use a hammer to hit nail or screw into the wall. you want to make an indention. Remove any loose drywall pieces. Take your putty knife and spread enough spackle to fill the indention you created, smoothing it as you go. Let it completely dry, then lightly sand until smooth to the touch. If you still see an indention, visible apply another coat of spackle and repeat the process.
Wipe and remove the sanding dust before you paint. Dip your paint brush straight down into the paint about an inch deep filling the bristles with paint but not dripping. Apply the paint usine the ends of the bristles and not swiping at the wall. Strokes will leave marks of the repair on the wall. When the paint dries it should be fixed. You may have to apply more spackle and repeat the process until it is perfect.
