We bought a home with a large wooden shelving/bench unit in the basement. We’ve ripped out the unit, however the plaster walls behind it are unfinished/messy looking. We’ve had a few contractors to look at it – pretty much all agree if they try to patch it up, it won’t look perfectly consistent with the rest of the wall. Currently we’re thinking instead we cover it with shiplap. Any other ideas/suggestions? Thank you!
