We've just stripped a layer of wallpaper off in order to paint the walls
but found that removing the wallpaper has also removed some of the
underlying paint, down to the plaster. I'd say around 10% of the wall
is down to the plaster. The stripped walls are in good condition, but
the plaster bits are recessed by a couple of coats of paint.
The house is around 15 years old and the room 10x10ft. I'd assume it
just had a couple of coats of builders magnolia. What would you
recommend I do:
A. Redo the room in lining paper and paint over the top.
b. Dab the plaster bits with a watered down solution of magnolia and
then do another coat on the plaster bits in a futile attempt to bring
them up to the same 'height' as the still painted bits. Then paint over
the lot with a roller. Are we likely to still see the plaster bits with
Any ideas welcome. I start tomorrow.
