With all the furniture out, and the floors down, hubby and I started talking color for the livingroom and diningroom.

There were plenty of places where the dampness had cracked the paint, and I’m going to have to sand the walls down anyway because the paint has a texture. It’s a good thing we started scraping, though, because all this paint would have come off on the rollers of new color if we hadn’t:
