I am looking to remove an old intercom speaker from my bedroom wall and patch over the hole. I removed the speaker to find a metal mount in the wall attached between two studs.
My questions are: is it recommended to remove the metal mount? How well will spackle adhere to the metal?
Im somewhat afraid to attempt to remove any more of the wall to expose where the mount is attached to the stud in fear that it is nailed in instead of screwed.
I've been told the walls are plaster, but I'm not sure. I know I have to attach a backing board between the 2 - 2x4s and cut a piece of plasterboard or sheetrock to fit, then patch over it. I mostly concerned with whether or not I should remove the frame.
