    hi,

    I recently strippped off all of the wallpaper in my flat and when I did a lot of cbhips came out of the plaster work. So I have spent a while go back round all of the walls with plaster to fill all of the wee gaps up.

    We are going to put wallpaper up - do I need to do anything else to the walls before this? Im think the next time the paper is stripped it might take off the wee bits of plaster I have done with it if I dont treat it

    cheers

    Size it with a weak mix of wallpaper paste first.

    Regards

    Some of what came off? The plaster you put in? What type of plaster did you use?

    How about a professional? ;)
    Did you PVA the holes before you put the plaster in?
