I'm in a house built in 1870's. The rooms are large, the walls are plaster. I'm trying to avoid problems hanging things on the walls and wonder if, rather than stripping wall paper and fixing old plaster, has anyone ever just covered the existing walls w/ drywall? I can remove all the door/window moldings temporarily since I know drywall would take away the "depth" of the moldings if I didn't, then re-hang after drywall is installed. Has anyone done this? What problems developed? How were they solved? Am I crazy to even consider this? I hope someone out can help me make this decision!
Thanks - JB
