First of all bad surface must be clean with some tool. Then create new plaster on it. Also check some leakeage of water that may be cause surface bad.

You know, en Europe they have a lot of uneven walls and it is beautiful. I think you could obtain the same type of surface by applying plaster and working it and leaving the marks made by the tool. Then you could paint or not depending on what you want but it sure seems to me like less work than sanding and reworking the old walls. You can also put new sheetrock but that's more expensive than plaster. Good luck

Does anyone know a way round this? Matt paint has been used over the top of silk paint, which may have been used over the top of bathroom paint, and the result (unsurprisingly) is a crazed and cracked surface. Is there any kind of undercoat or something that could be put on top of this before repainting? We are trying to avoid scraping all the walls.
Any ideas that don't take hours of work or cost a huge amount would be welcome.
