We have a curved wall we are trying to recreate with drywall. The plaster was in such bad shape it had to come down. I've seen how to make a concave curve, like a barrel vault in a ceiling but this one is wrapping around an outside edge of a wall. What is the best method?

what you want is 1/4 inch drywall

start at one side bending it across the curve slowly to work out any bubbles

use alot of screws to make it conform to the curve

this should work just fine

also if you wet the back of the drywall before putting it up it will be more pliable


hope this helps------------josh
