    Thanks for great project you have shared with us.Water damage and stains on drywall are usually the result ofa leaky roof or plumbing fixture. Water damage will cause a stain to appear on the drywall. This is usually the first sign of a problem. Painting

    I like to cut the square plug first and then trace it over the hole.
