as some of you may agree, its absolute nightmare to fix into lathe and plaster!it crumbles every time i fix into it!
my house is about 150 years old. I'm trying to put some shelves up in my bedroom and its prooving to a bit of a pain in my bum. its an interior wall and i don't know whether there is blockwork behind it, and if there is, what fixings do i use? or should i look for the studs and fix into them? any suggestions would be much appreciated!thanks!
