These are before pictures of the kitchen. Love that paneling, it isn't really that bad but it just made the room so much darker.
Then these are not quite after but gettting there. I used drywall mud and drywall tape to fill in all of the grooves in the paneling so the surface is smooth. I just finished putting the second coat of mud on over the taped layer so that we dont see the tape after the paint is done. It has been quite a job but it is much easier for me than ripping out all of the paneling and redrywalling. That would have taken me a lot longer. I love how it looks so far and cant wait for it to be done and my house wont be such a mess!!
