First I used a mesh patch and covered it in a joint compound.
After it dried, I sanded it and reapplied to even out the meshy-er areas.
After sanding it again and wiping off the dust it was time for paint!
I can't even tell you what color it is. I want to say that this beautiful grey-blue color is a Martha Stewart brand and I think it was called "Dolphin." Don't quote me on that though.

With the lights on!
One more last shot.
Why is it that a simple project like patching a hole in the wall takes me two weeks to finish?
