I recently bought a home and am in the process of remodeling. I bought some pine chair rail and once installed, it looked like i put a snake on my wall. The curves are so bad that i cannot install in any of my rooms. I put an eight foot level against the wall and noticed how bad the curves in the SR are. Is there anything i can do straighten out these walls or hang the chair rail?

Thanks

You might want to have the wall plastered. A good float of plaster can straighten the walls back up.

I agree with Zippy, you can have a "professional" drywaller ease the uneven wall by screeding the finish.

Shouldn't cost too much actually. You can always give it a shot but it's not as easy as it looks.

You can also try and scribe the wall to a piece of flat pine, cut it and the add the chair rail over it. Depending on how you paint or stain it won't be nearly as bad......MJH
