Covering plaster walls with paneling is a fairly simple DIY job. Here's how to install wood paneling on plaster walls.
Removing wood paneling from walls is something that you can do with a few basic items, like a hammer and a flat bar.
Taking old paneling off the wall in preparation for new paneling can be tedious, and removing the glue that binds the paneling to the wall can be arduous. Wall panels are often constructed of metal or wood and are covered with textured fabrics, materials or wallpapers.
Removing the wood paneling from the wall was a lot of work. The panels were heavy and nailed into the wall very securely. The were also slipped behind part of the mantel, so there was lot of jostling and prying to get them out.
Prime the wall before painting or wallpapering over it. Removing and Refinishing. Rip the wood wall paneling off the wall using a pry bar. Pull off the trim molding pieces along the joints and then pry the paneling away from the wall with a flat pry bar. Adhesive may have been used to hold the paneling in place, but pry enough and it will give.
That way the trim doesn't have to be removed or changed and the 1/4 drywall takes the place spatially of the removed paneling. It makes the walls look new and smooth and covers the cracks in the plaster underneath. But the plaster strengthens the walls and makes the 1/4 inch dw seem more substantial.
Paneling nails used to be the fastener of choice for hanging paneling. Then paneling glue became available; it was easier to use, and became very popular. Paneling styles go in and out of fashion, and many people opt to remove the paneling all together to get to the original wall plaster material.
