Life happens and sometimes the drywall takes a hit resulting in holes that need repair. Thankfully, repairing drywall holes and cracks is an easy home maintenance task you can accomplish in less than an hour. Clean the area needing repair; then apply a drywall patch to the affected area.
Use joint compound to affix the patch using feathering motions to blend it into the wall. Allow the patch to dry. Then, sand the area and reapply the joint compound as needed to patch the hole and blend with the surrounding wall. Once patched, allow it to dry before cleaning off the dust and repainting the room. This is something you can do as part of regular home maintenance or prior to selling your home for maximum value.
