Turn crumbling plaster, chipped stonework, or a tumble-down wall into a home's most attractive site. All the techniques are clearly explained, including restoration, repainting, cleaning stone and plaster, and replastering. All you need are inexpensive mallets and chisels, special saws and trowels, ordinary hammers, ladders, and scaffolds. These are attractive and value-enhancing projects, and they're much easier than you think. From the Old House Journal reference library.
