Hi all,

First time total ballsup needing help. I live in a 1970s terrace in Surrey and the missus asked me to take a clothes rail out of the cupboard to sort it out for the new baby's drawers.

The clothes rail was held up by plywood and nailed in either side to the walls. When i prized the screws out from the walls lots of dust came out and buggered the wall up. It's got a board like texture to it but because of the era of build I'm worrying its asbestos insulation board or something and I've been a total idiot. I'm useless at forums but i've uploaded pics on here:

Baby due any day now and I don't know how to make good of this/the dust if its hazardous.

Eternally grateful,

Desperate dad

Doesn't look like it from the pics, fill the holes, sand and repaint. Job done.

You'll need to filler the edges of old paint or it will lift when you repaint.
