Dealing with Damaged Walls the Easy Way

For every one thing I can do passably well, there are ten I can't.  A good example is plastering walls and I have that in common with whoever plastered the walls in the foyer before I moved here.

I can't tell you what a horror show this entryway was about three weeks ago and I truly don't know how I lived with it as long as I did.  


I peeled off the hideous wallpaper that was hiding the really bad plaster job and knew I would have to camouflage rather than repair, and I am here to pimp a wall covering which I am sure has been out for a decade, but I only found out about it when I was googling 'How to camouflage seriously messed up walls.'

 If you too have seriously messed up walls and you can't plaster worth a damn, and you like the look of beadboard, Wall Doctor is probably the way to go.

It hides extensive damage and you can paint it, but I left mine the way it came on the roll.  I can't say enough good things about this stuff.

Here is the finished entryway:

From a bit of a distance, it looks like the real thing which I couldn't install because that is yet another example of something I can't do.  

A closer look:

  1. Love the way this looks! Is it a paper product? Was it difficult to install? How about the cost? I'm really curious!
