How do you know if your plaster is good enough to paint?
I have recently begun stripping 2 layers of wallpaper in our family room with the intention of re-wallpapering. Yesterday the paint store informed me that the wallpaper we ordered is on backorder until DECEMBER. So - I have been giving the option of painting the plaster another thought.
How do you know if your plaster is in good enough shape? How much work is involved in smoothing it over?
