I have several spots in my living room where the paint is cracked and peeling from the crack outwards. My guess is the previous owner did it on the cheap and did not prep very well. Am I looking at cutting out the spots and using spackle or joint compound and re-doing the wall. I have painted it and did the primer coats and all that, but it appears this is right down to the base of the wallboard underneath the coat of paint put on by said previous owner. Looks like he never primed when he did his work.
Thanks, and sorry for being so long winded and confusing
