Quick Repair for Wall Corners and Ceiling Joints

Smooth out any imperfections and irregularities

Refinish any imperfections and irregularities in wall corners and ceiling joints with this simple, effective method.

  • Make sure the area is completely clean and dry.

  • Apply a bead of white latex caulk to the area with your index finger. Start at the top, and go straight down to the bottom (which would be the top of the baseboard).

    Tip - wet your finger before you apply caulk. This lets your finger slide over the caulk more easily, with less friction.

    *NOTE* You don't have to the do this step all in one motion. Break it up into several little applications if you want. Just make sure the whole area is done seamlessly.
