Replace Old Wood Paneling
Kitty Bartholomew transforms a room with her clever money-saving solution for wallpapering and painting your old wood paneling.
It is very important that you wash your walls first with a solution of tri-sodium phosphate (TSP). This will really get down into the grooves and will leave the wall a bit tacky, so don't rinse it.
Hang a heavy underlining wallpaper horizontally across the wall. This will make the paneling grooves disappear.
Next, apply a textured wallpaper that is made to be painted. Pick a texture that will suit your décor.
When the wallpaper is dry, paint it any color you'd like. Voila, your room is now transformed!
