This week it was the area where the living room & dining room meet, with ugly 70's half wall.

From the dining room:
Ugh. Just could not
be uglier. And yes, I broke out some $2 cuss words while patching
previous owners screw-ups and attacking the wall with a sander. As

half-wall with it's nasty 70's woodwork, but at the moment tearing it
out wasn't an option, we'd have had to redo the carpet and the dining
room floor to patch the hole. So paint it is!
Paint can work miracles!
