How to DIY Plaster - A Complete Guide

Plastering, it's a skill, a bloody arm-ache and something that costs hundreds, if not thousands! Money we don't all have, do we?! Well, I know I don't!

When we started renovating this house five years ago, we did everything possible to avoid having to plaster. I learned how to patch and repair walls so well that they didn't need plastering. But you know what? It was dirty work. So much dust and so much sanding.

Our kitchen renovation was such a big job, that we couldn't simply patch the walls. There were large chunks of plaster missing and patching would just be a step too far. So, we learnt to plaster. OK, I say 'we', but it was Grant who learnt to plaster. He took a DIY plastering course (total cost £250) and plastered the kitchen, the dining room and the conservatory. And you know what? After he got a rhythm going and a fair bit of practise in, you really can't tell it's been done DIY style.

So, perhaps you want to save a wad and do your own DIY plastering too? I'm going to share everything he learnt and everything we know, to help you DIY tackle plastering yourselves as well!
