Simple Steps That Will Help You Fix Holes in Your Drywall

painterwithbucketThose holes in drywall can be an easy do-it-yourself fix if you like doing these types of projects. You can make your wall look as good as new with a few simple steps:

Use mesh tape to cover the holes

Use mesh tape that is slightly larger than the hole to cover it. Cut a piece of mesh tape that is about one and a half inch larger than the hole that you intend to place it on. Place the mesh tape over the hole and try to flatten it out as much as possible.

Use a spackle compound to coat the hole

Apply a smooth coat of spackle evenly over the mesh and give it time to dry. After the first coat dries, apply another coat if necessary to completely fill the hole.

Sand the holes

When you are sure that the spackle is completely dry sand the patched area carefully to make it match with the rest of the wall surface. Do not rush through this process if you really want to have an even surface.When you are done, lightly dust the surface off using a rag that is clean and dry.

Paint the repaired holes

If you want your wall to look new again, finish off by applying an even coat of paint over the whole area which you have repaired.

With these simple steps, you will be able to fix holes in drywall very easily to make your wall look as good as new. Before you start the work, make sure that you have everything you need so that the process runs smoothly from the beginning to the end.
