We recently purchased an older home with plaster walls. The previous owner covered two of the rooms with that horrible faux wood paneling, circa 1970. We removed the paneling from one room, taking off 1/8" of plaster in several spots, and we also discovered the room is covered with large spots of adhesive. We attempted to scrape off the adhesive, but we only succeeded in removing more plaster and getting ourselves more frustrated. Is there anything we can do to repair the walls? Do we have to remove all the plaster and start over? Advice?
home depot and hardware stores sell a self sticking patch. it's mesh with a thin aluminum plate...just stick it on, spackle, sand and paint...it comes in different sizes. it works really well.
