Wall paper. You can use any kind. that is what it had originally I am sure. They used to make them that way. Some really fancy ones were lined with silk but most were just plane old wall paper.

First of all, are you sure you want to refinish? Is this an antique, or has it already been "fixed up" for appearances sake? If you do want to refinish the inside, the wallpaper idea is as good as any, just be sure that the "glue" you use will not attract "critters" that love to chew on such things. I mention that because we also live on the gulf coast, and palmetto bugs, mice, you name it, like some glue substances.
