Anne, do not be intimidated by a little spackling. It really isn't that difficult. Put it on a little at a time to minimize sanding. Start with a 3 inch trowel and then move up to a 6 inch or larger one. Use premixed, light weight joint compound. You'll be surprised how good it will turn out. Put a sealer on the holes BEFORE spackling (there are products on the market just for that purpose- check Zinsser Gardz or Sherwin Williams PrepRite). Also, be sure to wear a good mask before doing any sanding. Eye protection is a good idea too. After spackling, be sure to use a latex primer before doing anything else.
You might want to check out some of many sites on the internet for more information such as Try a search.
I am not a pro at this but we have had the same problem in the past. You can fix it!!
