and add three inches. The butterfly patch can patch a hole from two inches to twelve inches. After you measure the widest part of the damage, add three inches to your measurements and cut a new piece of drywall that size. This cut does not have to be exact. To cut the drywall, but the finished side up and score the cut lines with the razor knife, break at scored marks. Now put the finished side of the drywall face down and score the back of the drywall all the way around about 1.5 inches.

When the mud is dry it will turn bright white and its time to sand. Get out your sanding block. Using your sanding block, lightly sand off bumps and ridges and get it as smooth as possible. Try not to sand too far and gouge into the tape. As you sand, use your shop vac to suck up as much dust as possible because this stuff gets everywhere, and I mean everywhere, so also wear a mask. They sell a new type of drywall mud that creates less dust but I haven’t tried it yet, if you have, let me know how it works.
I did not think of photographing this area before starting. Suffice it to say that the damaged area was nearly as long as the patch. It was not nearly that wide, though heavily worn. Since I was patching anyway, I made it as wide as the scrap material permitted, thus reinforcing the weakened area that tends to take the most wear on this type of seat.
