I'm wondering, what is the best way to fix this? Anything I can do, or should I bring in someone? Any recommendations from the AT community about how to fix my uneven painting job to a nicer finish? Sent by Erich Editor - We've had this happen a few times ourselves on older uneven walls. We waited for the paint to dry, carefully used painter's tape on the newly painted side and repainted the white areas using a roller, a tiny brush for speckles/splatters, and a sponge. In certain instances, paint remover can be helpful to clean up areas where paint should not have been applied; the process can take awhile, but it beats repainting. We're quite certain a few readers out there have some secret painting tips that can save a slightly messed up result. Please share any tips with Erich and the rest of the community below.
