This is the hole after I cleaned it up with my dremel and its drywall bit. #love my toys
I was lucky to have a stud on one side. It gave me a stable place to start.

Shaping the original hole and cleaning it up made cutting the new piece easy. Then I applied (blobbed) liquid nails on the paint stirrers I glued in earlier, as well as the stud and carefully placed the patch. Now the glue dries.


I don’t claim expertise in this stuff but it’s good to be able to take care of things yourself. The wall has texture so I suspect it will be impossible to match it exactly.
