Hi~We just bought a house - new to us - that was built in the 50's. It has an almost flat roof with beamed and knotty pine ceilings, and the living room has 'pickled redwood' vertical paneling. It has faced where there was no furniture nor pictures hanging. We are debating what to do with it: rip it down, paint it (probably with a white glaze), or leave it as it is. Any ideas? or advice?
I tried to post a photo, but it was too big.
We close on the home Friday, if all things go well.
YES! I just viewed a home here that was remodeled. They took down the old paneling and put up 4'x4' sheets of walnut plywood, leaving about 1/4" between them. Very modern, very mid-century, and really cleaned up the space. If you look through enough magazines, you'll see several spaces done in this way. This can be done by a good do-it-yourselfer, but to get a really well-done pro-looking job, better to use a contractor/carpenter. I've seen this done with whole 4'x8' sheets run horizontally or vertically, and I've seen it done with various other sizes, cut so the room looks matched to the size of the panels. I like the horizontal look.
