The Case of the Re-Appearing Handprints

Or “The Ongoing Saga of Renovative Disasters”

You might remember my earlier mention of the chaotic state of my room. I’ve been working hard to remove all traces of it; first came the scraping and scrubbing, then puttying up the –teethmarks??— and sanding. Finally, though, I had it all prepped and ready to prime. Well, those ghastly handprints keep reappearing!
Next step: super heavy-duty toxin-loaded oil-based primer :DA "friend" getting caught up in the spirit of the room... (no fears, this is not primer/fume induced)

Looks like whoever said they would give a hand sure left their mark in your room.

Face it - someone's left a mark on your life that will never fade away. Embrace it or be doomed to live in utter discontent.
k, on a more serious note, I've heard that sometimes a heavy-duty black color works wonders.
