Not everyone has beautiful real wood paneling. Some people, like me, have the fake stuff from the ’70′s . There are lots of options out there to refinish and paint wood paneling, and you don’t have to just stick with white!
White paneling is classic, but how about a bright color?
Or, a pickled finish to add rustic texture?
I think this next picture is greatness! So unusual and elegant. If you can paint like this, you should definitely consider a hand painted mural (or come over to my house to paint one on my wall!).
This last picture was featured in this month’s Western Interiors, and I thought it was really cool and unusual how the designer painted the background a different color than the relief parts!
Wood paneling can add such texture and interest to your walls. And with so many different ways to treat it, you can make it fit into your style.
Next week, I’ll show you part two of recovering my headboard! Have a great week!
