Hello all.

I'm very slowly getting round to working on my spare room/office. The previous owners had put up shelves to hide the fact that portions of the walls are unfinished. Would I be right in saying that this would be some sort of cement skim coat over the block, then plaster on top? It's not plasterboard.

What would be the best method for finishing that small incomplete section?

Cheers.

Stairs: Foam plasterboard adhesive and plasterboard then tape and skim the joints.

wall: PVA then multi finish top coat. You also need to sort the cable box and perhaps protect the cable?

Thanks for the reply. That sounds like a plan. Time to get to work.

Yes I'll have to sort out the cable too.
