This post deals with repairing bull nose that are the rage in newer homes. After a few years the bull nose edges can get bent (pushed in).

This post shows the eight steps on repairing a dog carrier damaged wall.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the tools to repair the wall damage. Fig.2 shows the Homax Orange Peel Wall Texture that will be sprayed on the wall. For more information click here.
Step 2: Fig.3 and fig.4 shows the wall is damaged by a dog crate. The pictures below do not show the damage very well but there is a horizontal line on the wall were the edges of the crate removed the texture.

Step 3: The first step is to spray the texture on the wall. Its only a line so the spray has to spread over a much larger area than the line damage. Fig.5 show the first layer of texture on the wall.

Step 4: Fig.6 shows this roller is the tool that will flatten the joint compound bubbles. It will help create the texture on the wall.

Step 5: Fig.7 shows that after the texture on the damage area has dried for 5-to-7 minutes use the roller to flatten the joint compound. Fig.8 shows what happen if you apply to much pressure on the wall.

Step 6: Fig.9 shows another application of the texture on  the wall. It will take 3-or-4 application to make sure that the wall is the same level. Too much an the wall will have a bump to little and the line will show when painted.
