I just purchased a house. The upstairs bathroom has some drywall damage around the shower stall on the two sides of the shower that are adjacent to drywall. It looks as if the previous owners sealed up the leaks well (I've been there 2 weeks now and haven't seen any leakage), but their "repairs" also look a little messy to me.

How involved is the repair for this? Would this entail re-drywalling the whole section or could it be filled in with mud and re-painted? It almost looks to me that they already tried re-mudding, but I am an accountant who doesn't know much about any home repairs (I can do basic mudding though). If this is a repair I can do myself, then that is great. If I need to hire a drywall person to fix it, I might just live with it for awhile since there are other things on the list to fix first.
