Paint out or Do not paint out?
January 14, 2013
My home was devastated in the Super Storm Sandy. We are at floor boards right now putting it back together...would love some help ....I have solid wood paneling. The home was a fixer upper at the time, the walls in the great room were covered in this solid wood. They were stained mustard...we did a richer stain, like a reddish brown. I did all the moldings and at the time I loved the contrast. The ceilings are about 20' high and all the wood work is white white. Do I paint over them? Would that make the room more modern? Drywall is not an option, as the room area is open and around 800 square feet. I still want a contrast between my wood work, what should I consider, or just put on another layer of shellac? Thank you I hope I hear from you all.

I love the look of your walls and would opt to keep them as they are! The only thing I would do differently would be to paint the register grill above the doorway in a color to match the wood as closely as possible.
