Watch this video to learn how to repair holes in drywall, using two different techniques. One technique requires the use of a power drill, while the other technique, sometimes known as a “California patch” doesn’t require any power tools at all!

I wish I used the same drywall compound you used. I was lazy and bought the premixed type. (I also forgot to stir it before I used it.) Drying time on the product? Not 20 minutes but 24 hours! Ah- the good ole learning curve. Can’t live with it, cant live without it. Whats a newbie to do? Anyway, another excellent tutorial from my favorite hammer and nail person Leah. Regards: Chris
Thanks, Chris, I appreciate you writing in! Regards, Leah
Chris – just FYI. I actually recommend the premix compound. Why? Well, it’s pre-mixed! 🙂 There is a powder you can buy to add to that pre-mix compound that helps the pre-mix do the same as in Leah’s video… dry quicker. And, I’m a newbie too, but had a friend show me that little trick. Happy drywall’ing! BTW.. thanks Leah for the vids!
Thanks for all of your videos, you’re smile, and encouragement at the end of each one. 🙂
you’re very welcome, James, and thanks so much for writing in! 🙂
This is a great tutorial! I’ve watched 2 videos today and this site rocks! I wish I had found you a year ago. Thank you Leah!
Thank you so much Leah! You are da bomb!
headed to Lowes to try to find a sponge like you use. The one we have leaves gouges in the drywall repair mix. We are using the stuff that is pink and is white when it dries. Love your encouragement, smiles and presentation. I think I can tackle anything because of you.
thanks, Ron, hope your project goes well!
