My stupid mistake!
I know you experienced re-habbers would know better, but this is my first time trying to fix up an old heap. So I started with the walls - scrubbed, sanded, patched, primed and painted the entire house. Yesterday the guys came to re-do the wiring. Yes, huge holes all over for the new outlets and I do not have enough paint left over to cover the mess. I now have to try to match the paint or if not, I have to re-paint the whole thing. Lesson learned: Paint LAST!
