The Writing on the Wall

My mother used to tell us she prayed that each of us had children like we were. In my case, her prayers have been answered in Child #3.

As alluded to in a previous post, my third child has been known to draw on our walls. While there haven’t been any new sightings in awhile, I took some pictures of some of the existing creations.  And this one is not my artistic one.




Due to the shortcuts by the people who built the house, I cannot use a Magic Eraser(TM) to remove the marks. There is only one layer of drywall compound that is also the only layer of primer/paint. It contains a texture agent that shreds the Magic Eraser. Any other attempts to remove marks from the wall result in removing the mud/primer right down to the drywall in a matter of seconds. We will have to completely repaint (primer & paint) at some point.

  1. Kids in the house = semi-gloss paint. Wipe it down and go. If it is deep, there is still no need for a primer. I keep a 5 gallon bucket of wall paint in the house. I will change it when they are gone.

    This house is not mine. I get it after they are done tearing it apart.
