Holes in Drywall
Holes in walls happen. Whether it's from moving in large furniture or something else, the method to repair it is the same. You will need more supplies to fill a larger hole, and it requires a few more steps, too. Cut the damaged area out to calculate how large a patch you will need to have on hand to repair the hole.
The repair method for a hole in a wall depends on the amount of damage. To repair a fairly large hole, such as the one shown here, you will need furring strips and a piece of drywall to cover the area before you can apply joint compound and finish the wall. For smaller holes, a piece of mesh tape is enough to hold the joint compound in place.
