How to fix small holes in drywall
If you’ve been putting off hanging pictures because you’re afraid of making “mistake holes” in your walls, stop worrying. Here’s how to fix holes in drywall quickly and easily so you can go ahead and hang your artwork without fear.
There’s no need for a loaded tool belt when it comes to fixing a regular sized nail hole. All you need are a few supplies:
How to fix the hole:
• Scoop a tiny amount of spackling just enough to fill the hole
• Use finger or other tool to apply
• Wipe off excess with cloth or tissue
• Let dry for a few minutes and you’re done!
If the hole is on a white wall, there’s probably no need to paint it. On the other hand, if you have a colored wall, use a Q-tip, a clean nail polish brush or other very small brush to cover only the repaired area with paint. Try not to spread the paint beyond the edges of the repair, as it will make the spot more visible.
