Filling holes in the walls

I am going to do some remodeling and paint the interior of my 1976 Airstream, but there are many holes made by the previous owner. I was considering just using pop rivets but I am open to any suggestions.

I would appreciate an help.
Thank You,

You can get rivets with the ends pre painted. I have also made a mask from a sheet of paper with a small hole and then spray paint. There is also caulk available in different colors. Some of my holes I used to mount Byam hooks and a couple I used for a vintage Coca Cola bottle opener, which of course is only used for beer.

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

I used autobody filler. Worked great.
