Old home needs fresh walls
Question: Cracks in the walls in our 1920s home were re-plastered and painted. However, we didn’t realize that, under many layers of paint, was wallpaper. Near the ceiling, it has begun to sag. How can we fix the walls?
Answer: Solutions are available at your paint or hardware store that will help to loosen what’s there. When you reach the original plaster, sand it smooth and wash off residual glue. Let the walls dry completely, and then fill in any imperfections with plaster. Prime the walls. You can then apply paint or paper that is designed to hold up in humid bathroom conditions.
