Filling in a Hole

We begin our blog series with one of the simplest bits of DIY you can attempt: filling a small hole in the wall.

So you’ve decided that your current arrangement of paintings doesn’t quite capture the journey of passionate energy that you’re going for. No problem. The there is only one compound you’ll need to fill in the hole left when you take a nail or screw out: spackle.

Spackle similar to joint compound, but contains a significantly higher proportion of vinyl; it’s thicker and will set faster (and won’t be easy to sand once it has). Simply use the corner of a trowel or a knife to fill the hole with spackle, then wait for it to dry.

Once it’s dried you’ll want to paint over it, but we’ll leave the artistic decisions to you.
