Plaster wall repair behind kitchen cabinets
I am replacing the kitchen cabinets in a 1930's house. When we took the upper cabinets off, large chunks of plaster fell off from behind the cabinets. (I think they were already loosened up by the person who installed the previous kitchen in 1988.) Anyway, there are parts of the missing plaster that extend beyound the cabinets and I will reprit those with a basecoat and skim coat. But should I bother plastering the whole area behind the cabinets too? I was going to nail shims to the studs to build them out to be plumb with the plaster, so that the cabinets would have some support behind them.
Am I being crazy/lazy? Should I just take the trouble to plaster the entire wall again?
