It's been over a year scince my mum said she'd redo my room and the first thing that was done was the tiles on the ceiling were taken off and the ceiling was skimmed. I wasn't at all happy with this because it looks like a 5 year old did it. I assume sanding it down lightly then putting some of that pollyfiller undercoat stuff should do the trick I hope. My cupboard was also taken out but I wanted the walls ready for painting something the cowboy didn't understand. So this year the walls were skimmed and they did a much better job than the other lot but this guy was also slightly deaf. The otherside of this is flat. This is the problem. It seems the corner of this wall is a block of wood. I told the guy I wanted that flattened and the walls flat and ready for paint but he assumed I meant I wanted a block of wood sticking out of the wall. He asked me what I wanted him to do with it and I said well you're a carpenter what would you do! Then after he said ripping it out I said ever heard of a plane (good old D.T lessons) and he actually said no. I then reccomending sanding it down he said no again. I'm pretty sure sanding it down would work fine but I've ha no DIY experience and hoped someone out there could reccomend something I could do myself as I'm really ****** off at builders in general atm even though my mum keeps getting them to do more work in the hous.
