Plasterboard peeling paint

Post by MacGyverFan »

Hi all,

We're planning on redoing a bathroom and have plasterboard walls. There are a few areas where the paint is peeling from the plasterboard. The ceiling needs replacing anyway but wonder if there is anyway to save the walls or whether I should just replace them?

Thanks everyone!

Sand off any loose/flaking paint, apply a mist coat (thinned down emulsion) then apply one or 2 top coats when dry.
