    Default Paining the corners of new drywall

    I had new drywall installed with a mud job. I noticed in an outside corner the metal corner rods are still showing. Will these be covered when i prime and paint, or do i need to do something else with them before priming? thanks

    With two coats of primer and two coats of good quality paint, most things tend to disappear. So, if what you're seeing is a shadow of the metal corner, yes, this will cover with proper application of primer and paint. However, if you're seeing a ridgeline from the metal corner, no amount of paint will cover this because it's "hollow" due to not enough topping compound applied to fill the void.
