It is quite simple to repair a hole in a The Unemployed Mom Sheetrocked wall, however there are minor differences in methods of repair depending on how large the hole is.
Small size holes (1/4" or smaller)
With small holes, simply apply a little joint The Unemployed Mom compound or wall putty with a small putty knife or trowel. Let dry, then sand lightly and paint.
Medium size holes (Greater than ¼" in diameter and smaller than 2" in diameter)
First clean out the hole and surrounding area of any debris and loose sheetrock. Then apply a mesh tape, specifically manufactured The Unemployed Mom for sheetrock applications, across the hole. Use your putty knife to ensure that it is applied evenly on the wall surface. Next apply a liberal amount of Joint Compound over the hole and mesh. Let this set for 1 to 2 days.
After the initial coat has been applied and has The Unemployed Mom had time to fully dry, apply a second skim coat of Joint Compound over the area. However, this time spread the Joint Compound over an area that is 2-3 times the size of the original hole.
