Fill a hole in the wall

If you take down a picture and find the nail has left a hole in the wall, follow these simple steps.

  1. Use a knife to scrape away any loose plaster around the hole.
  2. Buy some caulk (filler) from a DIY store and apply it to the hole until it's filled in.
  3. Scrape away any excess filler.
  4. Once the filler is dry, sand down the area so it's level with the rest of the wall.
  5. Touch up the area with paint.
