17 foot interior wall pannelling HELP!

Postby lyndastar » Thu Jun 25, 2009 8:29 pm


Recently moved into our house, after all the furniture was removed by previous tenant we found fake wood wall pannelling on one 17 foot interior wall.

We have removed it, used Nitro Mors to get most of the varnish like glue off but now even with sanding finding it so hard to get a smooth wall again

Read about this smooth it over - but does it work? would be it worth just getting a heavily embossed wallpaper to cover the imperfections????

The wall is in the lounge - so it needs to look half decent if possilbe! :roll:

Help please!!!!

Hmm big area you'll waste an awful lot of time trying to DIY it with smoothover. If its that bad get a plasterer in to skim it.
