From time to time, we all have
to repair a hole in the wall. Whether it is an errant mop handle, a child
hacking away with a toy or a door handle; it has happened to everybody. This

matter how large. The main thing to remember when fixing drywall: thinner
layers of mud (drywall compound) are better. Do not heap mud over the area to
be repaired, it takes forever to dry and then you have to sand it all off. Your
goal is to avoid building a "hump" in the wall. Spread the patch out,
feathering the mud so that the repair is concealed!
