Steps And Items Needed To Fix Chipped Paint On Wall
If you want to hang posters, pictures, and another type of souvenirs on your wall then you may need to use nails and thumbtack but these types of items will definitely harm your walls such as hole or crack.

But you need to know that when you remove the tape then the adhesive is left behind and do some minor damage and can be the reason for chipped paint. Tape comes with a strong adhesive that can easily peel the paint from your wall and will break the top layer of drywall but you don't have to worry because you can fix this issue easily. Simply collect all the required items and follow all the below mentioned steps:
Things You Will Need
- Dry Cloth
- Waterproof Primer
- Drywall Paste
- Putty Knife
Steps For This Process
- First of all, you need to sand your chipped area of the wall with the help of sandpaper or any leftover adhesive, loose chipped paint, or the small pieces of broken drywall. Brush off the wall by using a dry cloth to remove any dust & paint particles.
- Now you need to apply the waterproof primer to your wall if the top layer of your drywall has been broken.
- The waterproof primer will keep the water from leaking through to the paint and avert blistering in hot & humid temperatures.
- Follow the manufacturer's guidance to apply your waterproof primer. Allow your drywall to wholly dry.
- Fill any divots or small holes by using a drywall paste with your putty knife. After any small hole is filled with drywall paste, slide the flat end of the putty knife over your wall to remove any excess repair paste and then smooth it out even with your wall. Let the applied paste to entirely dry.
- Now you need to add an extra layer of drywall paste if needed. The extra layer will fix any imperfectness of your first layer that didn't cover or if the layer is uneven in many areas of your wall. Remove any excess paste and then smooth it out the second applied layer with your putty knife and then leave the applied repair paste to entirely dry.
- Feel your wall with your hand to check for any uneven or rough spots. Sand over your dried drywall paste to make sure that it is flat, smooth, and even with your wall.
- Next you need to apply the primer over the repaired area of your wall to assemble it for paint layer. Follow the manufacturer's guidance to apply your primer. Leave your applied primer to wholly dry.
- Finally you need to paint over your repaired wall, blended the texture with the existent wall. Leave the paint to dry completely. Add another coat of your paint, if needed, to achieve the correct color for your wall.
