So what exactly is the “WALL POX?” When we built our house in November, 2009 they told us NOT to paint any of the walls until we had lived here for at least a year. OH MY GOSH! That was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard! Not paint my walls for one year??? Never.
We knew that as the house settled and whatever else new houses do, that there would be places where the nails would pop out of the dry wall. I KNEW that I would have to go back and fix all these nail pops someday, but that didn’t stop me from painting my house within the first few months.
So the first week of January a very nice man came and spent a couple of hours hammering all our “nail pops” back into place. Then he patched those areas, creating the start of WALL POX. I had to make it worse before I could make it better. I had to prime all those areas with white paint, so that’s when the spots grew even larger.
Truth-be-told, it was totally worth the few hours it took me to cure the WALL POX, in exchange for not having to live in an all white house for 12 months. I seriously could not handle that.
