Hello AT,

What do I do with this "sound-proofing" material?

It looks like paneling, but it is rough cut, so I can't just stain or paint over it without extensive preparation. Plus, I'm not terribly handy...

I have two walls of it. This one is 8 feet wide, and the wall on the other side of the room is 14 feet wide. The evening prior to being informed that it was soundproofing material, I heard my neighbors "enjoying each other's company". So I hesitate to take it down, but I can't stand looking at it.

Please help.

Thanks! Kim

Anyone?
