    I am putting some framed dado rail on bedroom walls. The walls are nice and flat apart from one area approx 70cm x 50cm region of a wall. Any ideas of how this can be rectified as I want the rails flush against the wall. I have attached a photo so you can see how out of whack the area is.

    joec1985, good evening.

    A lot of these timber dado rails can be bent to a certain degree, and using the glue of your choosing + pinning the dado back to the plaster with thin long panel pins [leave the pin proud to facilitate withdrawal]

    If the dado is more substantial in size, a few saw cuts on the reverse of the rail will assist in bending the dado back to the wall + pins as above.finally fill and sand any saw draughts that may be visible on the dado.

    Ken.
