SOURCE: We have been painting our

Other possible issues could be:

1. The paint wasnt mixed properly before application. You have to stir the paint using a wide paddle/object, scraping the bottom of the tim to loosen the pigment and mix it into the paint properly first, and then regularly re-stir the paint therafter.

2. Was a proper undercoat applied to the wall first? generally undercoats reduce the problem of patchiness by proving a more even surface for the final coat paint to adhere to and remove any existing issues with differing absorbancy of the underlying material.

3. Could just be bad paint. Also, check with the paint tin that the paint was applied during the right environmental conditions. Some paints can't be applied in extremely low or high temperatures, or when humidity is very high etc.

Hope that helps.

Your stud finder keeps beeping because old plaster walls have lath boards behind the plaster that are attached to the studs and running horizontally. Try adjusting the sensitivity of the stud finder by placing it on the wall and turning the sensitivity down until it just stops beeping. Then move it back and forth in a wide enough arc to be sure that you have crossed a stud, turning up the sensitivity ever so slightly until you get a tone when you cross a stud. Hope this works out for you.

When aplying fresh paint with roller paint is peeling back of with roller


what is the substrate? (plaster, drywall, painted surface.... etc.)
if the surface is painted: can you tell the generic type of paint used before? and what is the condition of the existing paint, is it chalky? did you try to sand it?
if so, you might need to sand it and remove all flaking and chalking paint prior to application of a new coat. you might also need a compatible primer for best results.

I am replacing my sink, medicine cabinet and adding a small cabinet below the sink. I need to know how to remove the old and install the new.


The task you are embarking on is a great DYI project. But, be forewarned, it can get tricky. First, make sure the new sink will fit in the space of the old sink. If not do you have enough space for the new sink to fit securely against the wall? Next, remove the cabinet. There should be about four screws. You may also have to use a razor to cut calking from around the outside of the cabinet. Sometimes it's used to fill-in gaps between the tile and cabinet. Remove the cabinet. If the cabinet is setting in the wall, make sure you check and see where the support beams are located. If you are not putting in another wall cabinet, then you will have to know what kind of wall you have. Sheet rock, no problem. Plaster requires a bit more work. Measure the hole, and then you will need chicken wire, lime, plaster, paint, and matching tile. Fasten the wire to beams in the wall. The wire will hold the plaster in place. Let dry, sand smooth then paint. If you have sheet rock walls measure the hole cut the sheet rock to fit. Fasten it to the beams, use plaster or Spackle to cover the holes from the screws. You will need sheet rock tape to hide the space between the existing wall and the sheet rock patch. Smooth on cover the tape with Spackle, smooth by sanding.


To remove the sink: first, turn off the main water supply. Get a pipe wrench and remove any connections. If you're not familiar with plumbing you may want to get a plumber to attach the connections.


Putting a cabinet under the sink is the easy part. Make sure you have the right size cabinet. Get a leveler; make sure the sink and cabinet are level. Depending on your walls, you can just screw the cabinet to the wall. If they are plaster walls you will need wall anchors. That should do it. Enjoy

I have mold on a plaster wall - how do i fix mold on a wall with mold


Clean the wall with bleach and then paint the walls with anti-fungal paint.
If this room is a bathroom then install an exhaust fan to draw out the moisture when you take a shower.

Just moved in here and a painted wall has really bad troweling marks left on the wall. What would be the best way to deal with it, Just simply sand back to a level finish? Lazy plasterer.


Wash wall with TSP, and then fill all of the low spots with new drywall mud. It is TONS easier and less messy to raise all of the low spots. Faster too.

Adding wall paper border


hi you never mentioned wheather the paint is gloss, emulsion etc?
if its emulsion it should be fine paste the border, draw some guide lines where you want the border to go so when you come to put it on you will know where it has to go, wipe it over with a damp sponge to get the excess paste off it, otherwise when it dries you will see the residue of the paste.
You can get border adhesive which is really good.

Good luck
