I have a drop ceiling in my LR & DR that I want to take down. The problem is it has a suspended metal frame with metal anchors in the plaster ceiling. How do I cover all the metal anchors or the holes removing them would cause. What is my easiest fix? texture???

Easy Sand made by USG is a quick setting type joint compound that is formulated for sheetrock or plaster, it comes in 90 minute, 45, and 20, it is found at most pro paint or hardware stores. Make sure the holes are free of dust before useing.

Before doing this I would test the plaster to see how crumbly it is, if it very brittle you may want to leave it as is or hire a pro to do it.

Just my opinion
