best way to cover unsightly uneven plaster
I have just taken the wallpaper off the spare bedroom wall and found the plaster is painted in layers of paint and is chipped all over. My husband has just finished a kitchen extension and re skimmed the walls but I dont want to have to ask him to the bedroom as he has so much other work to do and I will have to chip all the skimming off. I would like one wall to be paper and wanted to paint the other three so was thinking to hide the unneveness I would put lining paper up and paint over that... dont even know if this will cover the mess. Any ideas?

Thick paint is crap too. As a veteran "house do-er upper" wait and get the finish you want in the fullness of time. Also the thick paint sits like a big plastic- custard type - skin on top of the dodgy wall, so is a pain in botty when you do decide to take it all off. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
