When I was applying the drywall tape for the kitchen, I noticed some bubbles forming under the tape in some spots. I was getting all mad because I thought this was going to make the entire project look bad. After the tape dried, I forgot all about the bubbles.
When I was painting the kitchen the other day, I noticed one or two areas of the tape where bubbles were forming, I guess due to the moisture of the paint. The spots were hidden pretty well, so I didn’t really care. I guess the paper tape was getting wet and expanding.
Last night, I was telling Laura how well the color paint hides anything and everything on these walls. I looked up to the spot where one bubble was pretty large and noticed that it didn’t exist anymore. I was so happy. I think the tape dried out and tightened back up.
What’s the moral of this story? If you get some bubbles in your drywall tape when you are taping or painting, don’t freak out. They will disappear after everything dries.
