We're looking to replace two wooden towel hangers (1 on each wall) with new metallic ones. However, upon taking the old towel hangers off, I have two problems:
1) the holes into which the screws were screwed into had those plastic inserts, which needed to be removed (because the new hangers will not fit or cover them). That resulted in 1/4 inch holes in the walls. I've filled these holes with dry wall paste.
2) on each wall, areas where the old towel hangers were mounted are of a different color than the rest of the walls, which is to say, looking at each wall, you can see two rectangular areas of a darker color, and the rest of the wall is of a lighter color (whoever painted these walls before did not remove these towel hangers before painting).
Question: how do I go about choosing the right paint (the same paint as the rest of the walls) so that I can paint over these off-colored rectangular areas (which will also cover the holes that I've already filled), so that I can install the new towel hangers?
Thanks very much in advance.
