I've pulled out the closet and a few overhead compartments in my '78 Sovereign
, which has left me with quite a few unsightly rivet holes and stems. I am going to be repainting the walls and need to cover these up and/or make them flush with the rest of the wall. My questions are 1) What can I use to make those stems flush with wall (clipping them off hasn't been working well)? and 2) Can I used regular spackle to fill in the holes? I will be using an oil-base primer and latex paint over it.
By the way, I don't want to put more rivets in. The pattern would be distracting.
