Sigh. If that's the case then it's being left as is. The gouge looks better than anything a person of my talents (or lack thereof) could possibly spackle. Spackling isn't in my skill set.You need to spackle over the area, then paint, IIRC.
The possibilities are infinite really. The most basic of which involves a simple plastic soda bottle.I'm imagining how that can be used as a weapon or produce an explosion.
