I have just started to paint my kitchen ceiling and the first white coat really showed up some surface damage we hadn't noticed before.
It looks like the previous occupiers scuffed their fridge across it whilst getting it out.
The scuffs are around 5-10mm deep and in some places are as wide as 30-40cm squared.
Is there anything i can do to make it look better without hiring a plasterer to re-skim the ceiling for us?
I am assuming that the ceiling is plaster board of some kind.
The damage is similar to the image below, but not as deep, and it has been painted and over.
