Repairing crumbling plaster on exterior wall
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hey all,
We were removing the 17 layers of old wallpaper in the kitchen for a repaint and discovered the wallpaper was holding a good portion of the plaster around a window in place, which proceeded to crumble away when we removed the paper. This is an exterior wall and it appears to be brick covered with what I'm assuming to be brown coat, then a finish coat was applied to that. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to repair this to get a fairly even surface that we can paint? Drywall compound? Clean/wet, add another brown coat, then finish that? I'm sure getting this all to level with the wooden frame around the window won't be easy either. Pictures attached, we are at a loss, thanks!

When your house was built they put a board around window and door opening, plastered up to that level and then the trim hid the joint between the two. Now with smaller windows, you have a mess.
This seach will take you to lots of repairs and products.
