can lights
 
Hey guys, just got done installing some can lights in my living room ceiling, the joists in the celing were solid between the 2 floors so were 4 spots i had to create 1 1/2 inch holes with a hole saw to gain access to the joist to drill a hole through to pass the wiring through, what is the best way to patch these holes, i did save the pieces of drywall that i drilled with the hole saw by the way.

What type of surface was there before? Smooth or textured?
