Guided by advice from designer Dominik, molding was removed from around doors and along the floor. Photo below shows before and after, with large crevices resulting. Second photo shows first coat of cement. Third photo shows plaster of paris applied on top of cement. Last photo shows Alan using joint compound as final coat. Of course, then the whole thing has to be sanded, primed and painted. For final result, notice smooth surface around doors and floor in other photos.
