Filling in hammer marks on stair skirt board? Drywall mud? PIC


Hey guys,

Someone nailed a piece of painted plywood to my stairs and used the treads/risers as a nailing edge so I have a zig zag of hammer marks all the way down my stairs. Would drywall mud be acceptable to putty these? Going to prime with a primer first then fill all hammer marks with drywall mud, then prime and paint. Pic below.

That would work, but I'd use a heavier bodied filler like crack shot or Borden's wood filler. They feather out nice for enameling.
