Filling in screw holes in ceiling

Post by jc1231 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:45 am

I wasn't certain where this should go, so apologies if it's in the wrong place.

I've removed a kitchen blind, and there are some small holes where it was screwed in. What's the simplest way/product to fill those in? Thanks.

Small tube of ready mixed poly filler from B&Q
You will need to remove any rawl plugs that are still in the holes you can do this by putting the screw back in and pull it out
Once dry a light sandpaper then paint with you chosen colour

If it's just screw holes then fine surface filler from Screwfix will do the job.
