Good Questions: How Can We Cover This Wooden Wall?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I have moved into an apartment in Brooklyn. It is covered in wood paneling. The previous renter wanted the apartment to resemble his childhood country cabin in Russia.

My roommate and I don't like it, but some of our guests do. We are living on a tight budget, but want to cover the wood paneling with something else. Thanks! Rachel

Dear Rachel,


That said, we understand it may not be your style. Our suggestion would simply be to cover it with white cotton, which you can carefully staplegun at top and bottom.

Good resources for this are:
Pearl Paint - they have great wide and long pieces of cotton canvas at very good prices
Dharma Trading - an excellent source for cheap undyed or unpainted cotton products

Anyone else??
