Default Repairing small Dry Wall Holes

I know the process for replacing small section of dry wall, like when a door knob goes through the wall, but I have the smallest hole where the lock put an indentation and over time formed a hole. It's maybe an inch.

Is the process the same or can I mask it with something?

readjust your door stop and spackle, sand and paint.

I like using Fast-n-final. it's lightweight and dries fast.

I agree. Only I would use hot mud to make better time.

Worst door stops are those cheap ones that go on the hinge and damage the trim.

A few years back when $ was not such an issue, I bought solid brass ones ( where I had to use them as nothing else would work)and they have been fine. I know what you mean about the cheap ones though

I have seen good ones that do the job without damaging the trim but so many cheap ones over the years.

I need to change this avatar which is sad but it posts to large.

I like the avatar.

I'm going to try the hot mud and see how it goes.

I'm having to replace all the stopper in my house. They are all of poor quality and appear to have all been removed at one point so they are loose.

Thanks. I like it too and I guess I should just resize it.

The hot mud works good to save time if you are not trying to save time then then light weight drywall mud will work fine. I am not a big fan of spackle as it tends to flash more.
