Need help for a wall cover/idea for my kitchen
Flower Queen

My walls are a patterned on top with wainscoting on bottom. I love grey/white kitchens. Would it look good with a barn board or other kinds of boards to cover the top patterns all the way to the ceiling? Please help

I think that might be mixing too many wood patterns in a room then. You would have one on the bottom and another on the top. Is there a way to sand off the pattern on the wall that you do not like and then paint your two favorite colors instead?

Is that plaster or anaglypta wallpaper on the top?

The top is plaster. I really don't think I want to sand it, just b/c this is a big area. The panelling can come off. Do u think its a good idea to cover it up, with a different kind of panelling? Right to the ceiling? @decoenthusiaste

I just do not know if it makes sense to take off paneling and then put more paneling on instead. Do you think if you painted your colors that you would like this wall? Make the bottom a shade of gray and the trim could be white and then a lighter shade of gray on the top?

Paint is relatively cheap, considering the alternative rip-out. I agree with abbyjean, just paint the way you'd like it and see if it is tolerable.

That will work, too. Would love to see it when you are done!
