Simply Build It

unfortunately the imperfections will show through the lining paper. your only option i'm afraid is to strip the wall back to bare plaster - this will probably require skimming as the woodchip is obviously hiding something.

you could skim straight over the top of what you have, though longevity of the work could not be guaranteed.
