    hey guys, so i was doing some drilling in the bathroom and accidentally drilled all the way thru to the landing and knocked out a bit of plaster!
    what would be the best and/or easiest way of putting it right?
    thanks!

    Clearly the plaster wasn't well bonded.

    Remove the loose plaster, make sure there is no further loose plaster, and then get some ready mixed plaster.

    Dampen the wall with a PvA solution give it a couple of coats, ones it's almost dry and tacky fill using the plaster, it might need s couple of coats to get the thickness, then sand it back smooth with the wall. You'd have to paint that section with a thinned down solution
