Can't believe that no-one's posted the NG Office Renovation Seminar yet.

Still, with that sorted, you need to go out to a store, get the right tools for the job, cut out the offending piece of broken plasterboard and replace it with new. Then, a quick skim of plaster over the top of that, leave it to dry (2-3 days), sand down and paint in the colour that you want and you should be well away.

No, if you can get some money (probably like $15) you can buy some things to fix it yourself, but you may wanna not punch your wall killer.

American houses are made of stronger stuff on the outside, that's just a partition wall. We have those in the UK as well.

I'm not glad that we have brick walls throughout, as my house is block built inside, with a concrete screed over the walls as a finish, instead of plaster. Ever blunted three drill bits, trying to hand a picture? I have.

I did a similar thing a few years back, the hole in the wall not being as big as I was a kid when I had this little rage fit and punched the wall. What I did was get some cardboard blue tack the four corners and stick it inside the wall covering the wall. I then smothered it in polycell and painted over it when it dried up. The result was pretty shitty but better than a gaping hole in the wall. You can always cover this ugly wound up with a poster like others have suggested.

LOL i did the same thing about a month ago to our living room wall, except i used two hands and busted both of them up pretty bad, and also had to get stiches on me left hand. My mom thought I was crzy and she just put a picture frame over it. Fuck i will never do that again i was bleeding all over the place and nearly broke my hands.

I wish i would have hit a pillow instead

I did this once, but to a lesser extent. I punched an empty punching bag (one that would normally be filled with water or sand) so hard, it dented the wall.

We just like, dry walled it. Idk how to fix a hole. Hiding is the worst thing to do -- tell someone in the house about it ASAP.

If you can bring a shard of the broken wall with some paint on it to Home Depot or some other handyman store with a paint section, they should be able to give you a can the same color.
It might not look exactly the same, but if you are a trooper and really don't want to get caught just paint the whole wall/room.

You can make it a stash for candy or snacks or secret things.

Or if you're a convicted criminal you could use it as a body storage.

I was thinking of that as well.

Before you fix this. You now have a sweet hole to hide stuff.

That's one big hole in the wall. Don't be too shocked; nowadays, walls are kind of like slightly enhanced egg shells. They don't break in a touch, but they do crack a lot.

So sometimes, when construction workers tear down walls to join two rooms into one cutting the wall out is pretty easy. It's the wood/steel in between them.

However I've never seen a hole in the wall of that size that was made by a human fist.

Especially on the wall inside a house.

I punched my wall and nothing happened. It was a strong punch but my fist felt like it was on fire. I remember a friend (Who also plays basketball and is on my school's basketball team) got pissed himself and punched his wall. He suffered like me. And no hole, not even a crack.

So I would say that that wall is either weak, poorly manufactured, or old.

What to do? I would suggest trying to get that wall repaired and strengthened.

But, we all have financial issues so you may want to try something else.

Do you have a bookshelf or an everyday object that you put against a wall? Move it there. Got a poster you just bought and can't find a place in the room? There's a free spot right there. Maybe you want a little window allowing you to look at the wood behind your wall? Stick some transparent material onto it.

There you go. Problem solved, and case closed.

Hope my post isn't too long.

Do you know how easy it is to punch a hole like that in the wall? I've made holes as big as that or bigger from a single punch of me not even punching my hardest. People do stupid shit when they're angry.
I'd rather break things than cry about the world like over half of the people do now, at least breaking things can make you feel more alive..

To OP, walls are easily fixed. Wal_mart sells some stuff that you can put over it... Just don't punch that spot again!


Yeah, whatever.

1) buy a punchbag
2) Tear down that wall (use punchbag)
3) Buy a new wall
4) Put new wall in place of old wall

I really don't know what the matter is all about.

If you try repairing it be forewarned at most places drywall is sold as 4' X 8' sheets. Don't hesitate to ask if they have any broken pieces, or find a house under construction and see if they have a scrap or two. It might not cost you anything that way.
An in wall shelf is possible, but you'd have to enlarge the hole until you found the studs on both sides. Then make the shelf unit, stick it in, and screw or nail it to the studs.
Of course since you don't want your parents to know that's not a good idea.

So since newgrounds is so creative, what the fuck do i do? can i even fix that?

You will need:
Razor blade
Gypsum/plaster
small bucket or cup that is disposable/you don't care about
water source
Putty knife
Line joing tape
A replacement piece of drywall/blueboard
paint

Use the razor blade to cut a square hole around the hole you punched.

Measure the square hole and using your razor, cut a hole of equal size into your replacement board.

Slip the replacement board into the hole gently.

Mix up the plaster in your container with water.

Apply the joint tape in combination with your mixed plaster around the seam of the portion of wall being repaired.

Use the putty knife to completely smooth out any excess plaster from the tape joints.

After the plaster dries, paint that shit.

Or should i just cover it with some kind of poster and pretend it never happend?

or that

You should treat it as the start of an amazing hiding place, a burrow for owls or a tunnel to freedom.

p.s. Dude, don't punch your walls in, it can be really scarey for people you live with! Or maybe that's just me. I tend to convince myself that in the other room my friend has actually turned all green and huge..
