    Default Drywall cracks

    I am noticing small cracks in the inner drywall joints. What does this mean and can I fix this myself.
    Thank you

    Yes you can, if you know how to work with drywall compound and a putty knife. Youtube has excellent demos - spend some time learning from pros before you start.

    I'm pretty sure I just use spackle and a saran wrapped finger to smooth it out. It seems that a small bit of spackle works well when you have textured walls and cracks in the corners.

    As was said, learn how to do things right, rather than intentionally F'ing them up. Your method is not only incorrect, it is the wrong material to be using.
