I currently have a brick fireplace wall in the living room, but would like to plaster over it or even dry line the wall so i get a smooth finish which i can then paint as i dont like the look of brick in a house. It is painted currently.
The size of the wall is, 235cm High, 133.5cm wide and 10cm deep away from the other wall.
What is the best way to tackle this or should i call the pro's and how much will it cost?
Hi, just done a job similar to this and charged Â£70, I roughed out with bonding, fixed angle beads and skimmed over. Much easier to dot and dab, however if coving is present that can create problems. Total cost for DIY: Boards 2; Â£10, PVA Â£10, Drywall Â£5, Beads Â£3, Scrim Tape Â£4, Boardfinish Â£4, plus tools you might not have got, then finally time and lastly getting it right. :?
