I have removed 2 medicine cabinets and was patching the hole on the second one when my contractor told me I was doing it wrong. Because thee was nothing to nail to I got some clips that hold the patch in place, put joint compound, taped and then did the compound over that. Several coats, sanding between each and then added texture. The first one I did looked good but he told me I should do a butterfly patch and explained how to do it. I thought my first repair looked great. I cannot tell where the patch is except for the lack of paint. Was I doing it wrong or is this just personal preference?
