So, I put up a collage wall, and then hated where it was, so I moved it to a different wall. Also, we replaced the old curtain rods and moved the brackets. All of that meant a lot of nail holes to patch up on the walls of the living room.
This was actually a really quick chore. It took my husband and I no longer than 20 minutes last Saturday to get this done. It really is that fast and easy! And I’m so glad we did it, because the room looks so much nicer without all the little nail holes.
What you need:
- Nail hole patching putty
- Wall Paint (leftover paint used on the wall originally)
- 1″ Paint Brush

First, wash the walls lightly with a moist rag.
Next, use your finger tip to gently rub the putty into the nail holes. For textured walls, I like fingers instead of the putty knives.
Fill a small disposable cup with some of the original wall paint (mix the paint well first).
Use the 1″ paint brush to paint over the patched spots.
And that is it, it really is that fast and easy to patch the spots on the wall! After it dries, you shouldn’t even notice anything was there!
I mean, look at this wall where the collage used to be … there is no signs of lots and lots of nail holes!
From my home to yours,
