Q: Please tell me how to replace a piece of drywall (wallboard) about the size 5 feet long x 2 feet wide. The piece that needs to replace was kicked in starting at the baseboard and goes up about 5 feet toward the ceiling. A tenant recently moved out of my unit and this is the condition I found it in. Can I just cut a piece of drywall and nail it to the wall, then tape it and paint? Please tell me how to do the job myself.
If you find yourself staring at a blank wall, it's time to do something about it. It's a decorating fact of life that walls are the largest expanse in any room, and how they are covered and decorated is a real challenge to every home owner. Should you paint a wall? Or paper it? Or cover your walls with fabric? And what colors should you select for each wall?
