We will seek the advice of a local professional, and have them look at our situation. Thanks.

The floor does squeak in several places. We will ask a local flooring store to come to the site and assess it for us, since there is ambiguity regarding our situation.

Acetone took care of the problem.

I tried 100% Acetone, and it worked with a fair amount of 'elbow grease'. Problem solved.

comment Is it acceptable to paint kitchen walls in alkyd?
I think we will play it safe and use a water-based product on the walls due to your cautionary note regarding wrinkles. Thanks!

comment Should I use oil primer underneath oil paint?
So should 'latex' be used on ceilings and a good acrylic be used on walls in general? I have been confused because I hear the term acrylic and enamel...and never know which one to use where (I am referring to water-based enamels). Does water-based enamel simply suggest the sheen?

The walls are currently PVA-primed sheet rock. What do you mean by texture in this context?

You mention acrylic paints...I am somewhat confused by the different types of paints. Would you please explain how acrylic is different from a basic latex, and what are the benefits of acrylic over basic latex? We have used Shellac in the past in areas that had severe nicotine stains, due to your recommendation...thanks. This time we will use a regular primer.
