So I am a new homeowner as of Aug 2017 and I couldn’t be happier. On the flip side I am also finding many many things that need work. My home was built in 1936 and has been remodeled since (obviously haha). I discovered some paint chipping and peeling on the interior around a window. As I started to scrape away, I notice black mold underneath the paint and water damage to the sheet rock. Great. So I removed all of the sheet rock on the exterior wall to fix the leak between the window and the frame. While doing so I noticed damage to the ceiling as well and here is the real meat and potatoes of my thread:

Paint on the ceiling has somehow managed to separate perfectly between two old layers. The part that is confusing is there seems to be some sort of paper-with-adhesive layer between coats of paint as well. And yes, that’s mold also. Does anyone have any insight as to what is going on here, and what is the best way to fix this issue in your opinion? Sand and paint...replace sheet rock...im lost!!
