Wallpaper Over Paneling
Is there a shortcut to be found?
We have a paneled room that we'd like to wallpaper, but we can't bear the thought of what might be under the panels. Can you apply wallpaper over paneling?

Steve Thomas replies: You can, but it will look terrible. The right way to do the job is to pull the paneling off, fix the underlying wall, and apply the wallpaper.
