We had solid birch paneling in the entry and two walls in the living/dining room. Best thing ever was to wash it, prime it and paint it. I chose a manilla folder color (cream, basically) as it seems to go with most any decor and blends well with many other colors. Used the same color on the kitchen cabinets too. Never regretted it.
Totally lightened the space and gave it a clean look.
Painted our paneling in the FR years ago (against my husband's better judgment) and it lightened the room up so much. Now he is convinced....lol We painted it off white and then a few years later painted it a soft yellow.This message has been edited. Last edited by: May,
Thanks ..that's what colors I was thinking of the back ground color o the wall paper in the kitchen is that color cream ( I know wall paper is not in style)
If you are **rn do not do it. Not only is wallpaper not in style but neither is wood paneling. Do you want ** do something simply because of a current style?
May from Omaha...I believe it is also more of a guy thing (painting wood)...my DH was reticent about me painting our paneling too. Once I did the entry he got the idea it was a plus not a minus.
Had his approval to do the living room area then. Not that that would have stopped me, you understand....
I had to wait until I was divorced to paint the knotty pine walls in my kitchen and master bedroom! I don't regret it one bit--the walls OR the divorce!!!!
