FYI: This is NOT Kerry's Wall
Kerry has a good question: Hi there! I moved into my Lincoln Square condo last year- it was a gut rehab of a 1920\'s vintage building. Over the last 18 months, cracks have appeared in some of my walls. I am planning on painting my living room next week and want to repair the cracks prior to painting. Any suggestions on how to make them disappear permanently?

And...anybody want to help me paint? Just kidding- thanks for your advice!
