Moving out should I pay for these bad repair I did on my own?

Hello everybody!

I'm leaving my apartment soon and I tried fill the wholes that were there created by putting in place some shelves. I have followed the general reccomendation and bought the white plaster to fill the holes and then I tried to polish the result with sand paper. I'm very bad in handcrafted stuff, I muss confess, and I'm very afraid of the result (see attached picture). Do I have to paint the whole wall now? It is this include into the normal wear and tear?

Thanks a lot in advance for all the insights.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

AJ

Depends on your landlord, but most holes look like this when filled in by tenants who are not professionals. I would not repaint an entire wall since that could even be a bigger mess if you are not experienced with it. Depending how long you have been in your apartment, your place may be repainted anyway.

In our past apartments, we did the same as you and that was good enough for the landlord as normal wear and tear. Hopefully yours will do the same!

It depends how long you lived there and how long ago it was painted. Painting is 8 years.
You have to close the holes anyway - whether or not you must pay for painting.
Try chalk (Kreide) to cover it (strike over the spots lightly until they're covered)
