My husband saw an episode in which Bob covered wood paneling paper-mache style with what looked like brown paper bags. Anyone know where I could find the details of that episode? We have a house full of paneling, some with drywall behind it, some without, and I'm tired of looking at it and want something different.
I had the same problem- I hated my wood paneling and painted it, I decided I sisnt like the paint job and attempted to remove the paint-dear lord thats a project! we ended up relizing it was a major pain to remove the paint so we are now having to replace the paneling with drywall. I would a) if you ever plan on reselling the house-do not mess with the wood paneling, most people love wood paneling and it costs a small fortune compared to just drywall (more then double) so it makes the house worth more. b) make sure you experiment/test what you want to do on something other then the drywall because once its on there-more then likely there isnt a easy way to remove it...the paint thinner was ruining the paneling & stain on it. We had dark paneling with I was sick of because it made our living room so dark, but we dont plan on living in this house forever and plan on moving in 3-5 years so just update the house if you plan on moving, dont mess with it if you dont want to ruin it
