Default Mr Handy Man

I've been doing a lot around the house lately, including removing a row of electrical outlets in the spare room. It was used as an office and the outlets looked like shit.
It was a successful operation without me electrocuting myself.
Of course I had to fix the drywall which meant cutting a bigger hole so I could screw a new piece of drywall into the wall studs.
Never done it before.
How hard could it be?
Tried to be efficient and taped up the seams, slapped on some mud and did some sanding.
Didn't put on enough mud, so the tape didn't stick right.
Cut out the loose tape and put on some more mud.
Did some sanding but could still see the tape and there were divots so I put on some more mud.
Sanded it smooth but still wasn't perfect so I put on some more mud.
Sanded and more mud.
Sanded and more mud.
Sanded it smooth as a babies bottom.
I was so proud until I noticed my wall wasn't flat any more.
The good news is I don't have to mud anymore.
The bad news is I have to sand the shit out of it to flatten out the patch.
With the potential risk of over sanding which means I will need to apply more mud....
Makes me want to go back to the electrical job and shove a live wire in my mouth.

use a large flat edge tool... the patch is likely too big for a normal taping knife or trowel...Ive seen the pros use a large flat bar type thing after applying a lot of mud...it blends the patch out so it is barely noticible

OR....

put furniture in front of the patch and call it quits
