Replace a towel bar
The job involves repairing the hole in the wall, reinstalling the bar or a new one, and then redecorating the wall with a new patch of sanded wallboard. None of this is rocket science, but the job involves several steps.
Repair the old hole or holes using a wallboard compound with at least two applications; sand in between them. Paint or wallpaper before installing the towel bar. Then position each end of the bar on a wall stud (use a stud finder to locate them). Use a drill to predrill the installation holes for the fasteners and a level to make sure the bar is straight as you fasten it to the wall.
