    I once put a whole HOLE in drywall, but then I fixed it, kinda. So then, the HOLE wasn't WHOLE anymore.

    I did. In the current place I'm in. I was stupidly trying to hang a large mirror on a wall by myself and yanked a huge chunk of drywall while adjusting it.

    I dread when it comes time to move and I've gotta fix that. :chair:

    I put a hole in a hotel room wall once so I cut a square of wallpaper from the closet and stuck it over the hole with toothpaste.

    Seriously though you're just going to have to patch it using drywall mud. Brace it however you want, but you'll need to patch it and sand it with drywall sanding paper. Then paint over it. Look it up on youtube, it's not as hard as you think (unless the hole is gigantic)

    It's easy as fuck to repair drywall. He's right, youtube would probably be the best to learn. Pro Tip:grad: If it's a fist sized hole, wad up some newspaper and fill the hole as best you can so the mud will have something to stick to. You will probably have to fill several times because the mud will shrink when it dries. That is, if you don't want to cut out a fist sized piece of drywall to replace it with.

    As your landlord I would kill you, put the body in the hole and patch it up
