Covering Wood Panels

Category Living Room

We have wood panels on the wall and alcoves over the fireplace, which we added in the 70's. Is there a way we can update or cover these without taking them off the walls?

Why not paint them the same color as your walls?

We did this last year when we updated our hallway.

On the upper half, we covered it with a thick wallpaper. The grooves had to be spacked first but it came out wonderfully.

On the lower half, we painted over it with a light cream colred paint, and then put a chair rail up between the two sections.

If you paint them, you may have to apply a base coat or roughen them up with sandpaper.

Well,some folks have thought of painting but another suggestion is to attach sheet rock over the wood panels.Tape and sand the joints.Then you could paint or wall paper over a smooth surface.You should be able to do the job your selves.

Thank you for your ideas. I didn`t explain properly about the panels I`m afraid .They aren`t actually wood, but 10ft x 6 ft sheets that we glued to the wall.

It then gives the effect of wood and they have a shiny smooth finish. Thanking you.

Another alternative to covering wood wall paneling is Paper Illusions wallpaper. You can read more about it here: http://www.wall  es/paneling.html
