So my walls are plaster & I just removed

DWQA QuestionsSo my walls are plaster & I just removed

So my walls are plaster & I just removed the out dated panels from the bottom half of my kitchen walls. I had planned to put up drywall however there area where the panels were are flush with the wall. 1. How do I repair that? 2. Anyone have any creative ideas for that area as far as the walls go. Finally, I removed a soffit and it has exposed brick behind it. I wish I could actually find a way to keep that exposed as I love brick. Is that possible? Any creative ideas there?

As far as your you’re walls just take 2-3 fairing strips run the vertically top to bottom now you can run Sheetrock.. ceiling to floor..

I would do a plaster skim coat on the bottom half. I think you could have worked with the original wainscotting.

The joys of DIY remodeling. Based on the soffit shot there is no insulation between the interior wall and the brick. Does this matter to you? If so build out the wall with 2x4s, insulate then drywall. If not continue with demolition to expose all of the brick.

Seems like you could Sheetrock the bottom with 1/4” and have a piece of trim, chair rail, or something like that running across the top of it. Maybe not the best solution.
