So in order to not do any more damage what I have here is a paint brush. I’ll just use that against my hammer both to give it some leverage as well as prevent damaging the wall right there. Here’s another one. The same thing. So take my paint brush. Slip the wood under there and use that for leverage. Now I can just knock the high parts down Spackle and paint. Good to go.
