Decorate a plasterboard wall

Preparation You can paint and nail, but also glue and staple, on plasterboard. All finishes are possible on this material. Whichever solution is chosen, first remove the area to be dressed vigorously. Then do a fine patching of the smallest "snags" and sanding just as neat. Last dusting will allow you to move to the chosen finish.

Wall coverings

Wall coverings

To install wall coverings, it is first necessary to set up a network of chopsticks: they are fixed by gluing on the plasterboard with a Neoprene putty adhesive. Its cartridge presentation with a trigger makes it easy to apply. Glue the back of the wand and press against the wall with a long wooden ruler. The drying time of this glue is 24 hours. The fixing strips can also be stapled with sufficiently large staples penetrating 12 or 14 mm. The fleece can be attached directly to the drywall using 6mm staples, or on the edge of chopsticks. The coating fabric is then attached to the rod (after drying), with staples 6 to 8 mm.

Wallpaper

Wallpaper

All types of wallpapers can be laid on pre-dusted plasterboard using ordinary wall-paper glue. The application of a hardener on plaster, friable material makes it more homogeneous and gives it a better hold. The hardener layer facilitates the gluing and hanging of the wallpaper strips.

Painting

Painting

All paints used in the building are suitable for plaster. After dedusting, the plaster should be prepared by applying a hardening print layer to remove porosity. This layer provides a better distribution of the paint (second layer), as well as good adhesion. If you choose a lacquered paint, go through several layers and sand each one with a fine-grained abrasive. Professionals use an abrasive with 400 grit water. Dust or sponge and allow to dry as appropriate.
