My Grandsons room has 2 large closets, while my Grandaughter has only 1.Closets are back to back. I would like to remove his door,and close in the plaster wall.The walls are plaster,can I use drywall? In Grandaughters room,would like to cut in a doorway in the plaster wall and add a new door. How do I go about doing this, never worked with old plaster/lath walls before?

I hope you get an answer to this because I have a wall that needs to be replaced in my living room. The previous owners cut a 8 ft square hole in my living room to open it up to the 4th bedroom. I'd like to close this wall off. Thanks.

The trouble is you can "never" get the wall to match...........and by the time you pry all the old trim off the wall the plaster will be gone...........

What about leaving the door in place and just adding the new door in the other room......Just lock or seal the 'wrong' door
