I have a closet that is to the right of a shelved pantry and wanted shelves to hold baking dishes, bowls etc. Half the wall in the closet was/is very smooth plaster which was never painted but smooth and a little discolored after about forty years. The plaster was actually pretty nice. There is also a little particle board used toward the front which was old but fine. I had painted the pantry with white flat paint a few years ago and it came out really nice.
Before the contractor put the shelves in he painted the smooth plaster walls with Behr primer/ paint combo semi gloss. The paint job had drip lines all over forming a rather weird design, almost looking like cracks were underneath but this was not the case. It had literally dripped down and down. Then I accidently knocked some of the paint with a dish and I pulled on it after he left and it came off like peeled rubber. It peeled badly around where he had added some sort of plaster and or spackle to smooth out where some nail holes were before. The paint job looks like crap. I called and he said that there was nothing he could have done to prevent it. Do I really have to live with this ugly, cheap looking paint job? Should I pay him again to fix it?:mad:
