I don’t know why wood paneling terrifies me so, but it really does. So, if you live in a house with floor to ceiling wood paneling, do me (and yourself) a favor and grab a can of paint. Nothing is more terrifying than sleeping in a pine box, DO YOU HEAR ME!?! 
 Ahem. Anyway, here’s a lovely look at what Rose did with her bedroom. It makes me wish I had wood paneling, just so I could paint over it. Total cost for Rose’s room renovation: Under $200! Check it out on her blog HERE.

    So pretty!

    And you’re right . . . sleeping in a pine box is terrifying!

    Our living room was paneling when we moved in. Painting it was the single best thing I’ve done to make-over my house.

    For most of the 70’s and 80’s houses in the Pacific Northwest were given the rough cedar paneling treatment. Ceilings AND walls. And to add visual interest (??) the panels were placed on the DIAGONAL. We have just bought a house so blessed, and will be drywalling over the cedar ceilings and walls. There are some things paint can’t fix!
    Love your blog–a real testament to people’s creativity–and your own great eye.

    I have lived in a few paneled beach houses, but that was KNOTTY pine paneling, there IS a difference. However, one long ago apartment had a huge bathroom, the size of a bedroom, with BLUE (yes, BLUE faux wood look) paneling. One night I just got a wild idea, ran to Kmart for some paint, and stayed up till dawn painting that bathroom a lovely dusty rose…hey, it was the 80’s, try to be more understanding. Plus, it was an old house, and the tile in the bathroom was gray and pink, so the rose went perfectly with it. IT was my first real “decor” job and I was very proud. Wish I had pictures.
