I was hanging some speakers in our living room.
And managed to punch a hole in the wall. [I was pounding in an anchor, and the wall gave way. Sigh.]
This weekend I decided to patch said hole.
I learned some things about myself and drywall patching:
1) If the piece is just a little bit too big, never try to push it into place. Bad things happen.
2) When trimming to put a new piece in stud-to-stud, don’t accidentally cut a few inches too far on one side. Bad things happen.
3) When taping, be sure to get enough mud under the tape. Otherwise, bad things happen.
4) Don’t let Nate do drywall. Bad things happen.
In any case, it’s mostly cleaned up now — just need to sand it, paint it, etc. Sigh. ;)
I really should have taken some pictures.. sorry, I’ve been sucking at that lately.
