After months of looking for a new place, I came across this semi-attic space covered in wood paneling. I knew I couldn’t sign a lease without thinking first of what my makeover would consist of. After all the makeovers I’ve done in the past, I had to came to terms with the fact that this one would be a whole new deal. It was going to take more than just hanging art or getting new bed linens. Thinking of how to cover the wood paneling kept me up at night, I’m not gonna lie!

So I started looking for DIY blogs on “how to cover wood paneling”
and I found this one, which helped me out alot. It took four of us (my lovely brother, his girlfriend and my brother in-law) to get this project done in three days.

Tons of primer and gallons of Behr Paint called “FRESH POPCORN” later….
