Removing Drywall Anchors And Patching Walls
Drywall Anchors and Wall Patching
A painter friend of mine, Mark O’Lalor, showed me a neat trick that allows you to fill drywall anchor holes holes that drywall anchors make in one pass.
Normally you have to fill the hole, let it dry and re-fill the hole after it shrinks.
Removing Drywall Anchors And Patching Walls TIP
1. Take a large Phillips head screwdriver and slightly recess the drywall anchor in the wall. This takes some practice you only want to recess it slightly. I use my palm but a gentle hammer blow would work too.
2. Once recessed, apply your quick dry Spackle or drywall compound and use a putty knife to smooth scrape over the wall and hole flush. DONE!
