Tip & How-To about Tools & Hardware - Others
Well here is a tip that im shure you will enjoy!
How to patch a hole in your wall !
Don,t worry about cutting from stud to stud so you have something to screw too, just cut out a piece of sheetrock alittle larger then your hole ,
Then take your cut sheetrock piece and put it over the hole!
Then take a pencil and trace the cut sheetrock over the hole
Then cut out the hole to the size of the traced piece of sheetrock
OK here comes the fun part: Take 2 larger wooden paint mixing sticks (you can get them at any paint store , sherwin williams,ben moore, home,depot , sears, wallmart,lowes..you get the idea! and there always free so stock up for future holes,
Now take one stick and put it into the hole so that both top and bottom of the stick are equal lengths so that you can put 1 screw countersunk on both ends from the wall side ...what that screw is doing is making a secur backing for you to screw your cut piece of sheetrock to! ...but one is not enough so get that 2nd paint stick out and stick that also behind the wall and screw it from outside at top and bottom ...now your ready to screw that piece of sheetrock to the painsticks ..after thats done just tape and spackle ...once you try this you will always use this technique ,,GUARANTEED!..good luck and happy repairs, glenn
