    I just finished sanding and might be ready to paint except for one thing. I was using really bad lighting and after seeing it under a work spot light I noticed I sanded the drywall pretty good while trying to sand the seems.

    My question is, can I just prime and paint over that or will it show? I am going with gray paint if that matters. They drywall isn't too bad but it's a little 'furry'.

    What can I say, I'm a rookie at all this. :b

    Look through this forum. I think someone used a sand based paint that would provide some masking effect to oversanding. Maybe stop by your local Home Depot, Lowes, etc... and ask for their help.

    Dont feel bad, I did the same thing with the wallpaper scorer/remover, my poor son's room has huge deep score marks in it in orbital patterns. I have to repaint to cover this.

    It will be noticeable if you just prime and paint over it. Spackle again and sand a little lighter over the drywall paper. Don't use sand based paint unless you want your whole wall "furry" and feel like sandpaper.
