Patching around a thermostat...Part 4 Patching around a thermostat...Part 4 If you see that your patch, around the thermostat &/or t-stat, needs just a little bit more mud......that's ok....put a little more skimming material over the patch. This is called a tight skim & you will hardly be putting any sheetrock mud on the patch, but what you do put on, will cover any remaining imperfections you may have on the wall, around the thermostat. Before painting around the thermostat/t-stat location, make sure to carefully sand the finished drywall patch. Take your time, when patching around a t-stat &/or thermostat location, as your eye is drawn to that, after the painting has been completed. Make sure you don't sand too much, around the thermostat patch, or you will take off all the mud you just put on. Make sure you also use a construction light, as it will help you to better blend in the existing thermostat patch, into the existing surrounding wall area. It's not hard to patch around a t-stat & or thermostat location. If "joe" can do it, you can do it!
