When I first moved into our home...It ws all dark brown paneling...the kind that gives you splinters when you wipe them down....just like Shawn I have painted over mine with a good grade of Acrylic Latex paint, semi-gloss. In some rooms I left the lines and have stenciled on some too. Now in our bathroom I took joint compound and kinda made it look like stucco, then painted it a country white..It came out great!

In one room I stucco the top half and left the lower with the lines and it looks great too. Kinda like wainscoting.

The way I figured it...anything would look better than dark brown did I tell you???? We also had many different types of carpets and colors some were in the same room!!! Yuck!

I sometime wonder are houses just a Money Pit?
