I removed a towel bar from the wall and now there are 2 not so nice holes where it used to be. :<
Any tips on how I can patch the holes? they are about 3x4 inches. All help is appreciated :>

Use short lengths of 1X4" (actually 3/4 X 3.5"), stick it into the holes, hold it to the back of the drywall with a string around them, and screw them in place behind the holes with drywall screws.
Then cut and screw a drywall patch to them.
Tape and mud the seams and screws, sanding between each of the three coats after they dry, then paint the wall.
Good luck!
Mike

Hi,I had a simular hole in the wall and I purchased at Home Depot a patch you can put over the hole. They sell it in 2 sizes,one is 4by4 and the other 8 by 8. It`s a aluminum thin plate with fiberglass mesh over it. All you do is stick it over the hole and use compound over it till it blends in. Hope this helps.
