We have a hole in our plaster wall caused by my boyfriend putting his elbow through it as he fell over. We have an inspection in 8 days and urgently need someone to fix it!

then use plaster filler or something similar to fill in the rest ( smooth it down to be level with the wall). After the plaster has dried just sand and paint ( you should take a chip of paint to bunnings or somewhere and get it matched and buy a sample 500ml tin for $10 or $15) then you might be able to get away with just painting a small area, If the paint is too hard to match you might need to do the whole wall. Otherwise I can come and take a look if you still need someone.
Hello, sorry for the late reply. I have experience in this area I could come and take a look for you tomorrow afternoon however If I was you I would have a go at doing it myself. You normally just need to chock the hole up ( depending on size of the hole you could use newspaper, cardboard or you might need to glue a sheet of mdf or something solid into the area behind the wall)

Hi Peter, we're both working tomorrow but Tuesday afternoon would work if you're free then? Do you have experience in fixing walls and these types of holes? And yeah we'd need it painted too..
I could do it tomorrow, Do you require the wall to be painted?
