Did the kids have a little too much fun playing hockey in the basement? Perhaps you didn’t know your own strength with a hammer when trying to hang a picture. Repairing a hole in the wall can be made easy with a few simple tools and tips.
For a repair on a smaller hole, simply scrape away loose debris to have a nice flat surface.
Using a dry wall knife, apply compound to the hole – feathering out the edges.
After placing the filler piece in, use a wide dry wall knife and apply compound to close the gaps between the new piece of dry wall and the existing wall.
