Thanks for the reply, looking at the pictures from the other topic its a very similar problem except our walls look alot worse. i am trying to upload some pictures. i did try the polycell base coat over a patch of wall but you can still see it. we've had the same problem in most of the rooms we have decorated with no real satisfactory results, including lining paper.
