The Cross House
Remember the butler’s pantry?
I am un-remuddling my own remuddling from a few years ago, and have been working on infilling the wall I knocked a door into.
So, why the argh?
In all my decades of working on old house this has never happened before.
At first, I removed the offending areas, and then roughly sanded the original paint.
Then I re-applied joint compound. Two or three days later, it would crack and de-surface again.
Hence, the argh!!!!!!!!
So, I pulled off the offending areas again, sanded some more, and then applied a good primer.
This seemed to work.
The next day though new areas would crack and de-surface. Areas I had not fixed yet.
So, argh!!!!!!!! became ARGH!!!!!!!!
And I now officially give up.
