I have had two bedrooms re-plastered, used diluted under coat then two coats of Dulux matt emulsion on the ceiling and walls. The ceilings and one particular wall look really patchy. I’m going to have to pay a decorator to paper or can I put it right. Need some help!

You failed to properly prepare the new plaster for painting… you should have used a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer then finish coat with Sherwin Williams paint (acrylic)… one coat will do it…

So start over and use the procedure above…
