Default Termite damage

Looking for some recommendations for wall prep. The exposed areas are kind of sandy and gritty.

Any ideas?

Wow dude, that's a disaster. Might be more of a "tear er down er, than a fix er up er.
Replace the Sheetrock maybe?
If you didn't need to really make it smooth looking you could prolly patch it up solid enough.
With crumbly sh!t I like to spray seal krete original on it after I get the loose stuff off.
It hardens it.

I'm picturing anaglypta (anything out of vol. x) with BM modern metallics copper hammertoned with a nice battleship gray rustoleum oil based (pre-mixed) for the walls, but leave the blinds and trim alone. they look fantastic.
