Why not? Use glue and a brad or pin nailer to attach the frames to the wall. It'd drive them a lot more rapidly and cleanly into a plaster wall. Provided it's not already weak and separating from the lathe.

Thanks Kimberland. It is such an inexpensive way to dressup a room.

Because of the texture on the walls the frames won't sit flush on the wall, and I'd have to caulk around every frame. If we ever wanted to take it down it would be a hot mess of a project.

Even with regular walls they are not perfectly even. I found I had to caulk all of the edges. Even the edges that were flat to the wall looked better with a little caulking so it does not look like a separate piece on the wall.
