Twice we moved into homes that had dark pasts. The first was a home where a little boy had been pushed down the stairs and died. Every once in a while we would hear a thumping sound starting on the second floor all the way down the wall to the first floor. In the 2nd house a woman had collapsed and died in the gargage while skipping rope. While out there doing laundry we would often hear the ta-tapping sounds of a rope hitting the floor. HOWEVER, we never considered it a bad thing (we also found out after we had already moved in). If you think of your home as being a member of the family then any quirks it has are just that..quirks.
Would You Buy a House with a Dark History?

Lolololllll...this CRACKED me up!!! But only because we have all been there. It's always eSier to start a project than to finish it. It took me four days to do my livingroom walls in a faux Tuscan finish and afterwards swore that I would never paint again. But like the pain of childbirth you soon forget how horrible or was as your standing there looking at the beautiful thing you've created. The only advice I can give you is put on dome kick ass music, pour yourself a big glass of wine and grin and bear it!!!

Ugh...that stuff is EXPENSIVE. I was actually going to faux paint my wall in a brick pattern after finding out that it's about $70 for a 2'x4' piece.
Ideas for Truck Load of Faux Brick?
