I've tried drilling and screwing rawplugs into a a plastered wall for a curtain rail.
The house and plaster is pretty old, I've just had the room skimmed and painted. When I drill into the plaster, I get past the skim to the base plaster that is merely dust (mostly) and won't hold a plug. The wall beyond is stone (at least it is on the outside) so drilling isn't much use.
How do I get the curtain rail up ? If I use a baton, should I try to nail it or use no-more-nails etc....will this simply pull all the plaster off ?
