is this wood paneling that you've painted over with white? I just purchased a home with 1980 real wood paneled 2 story walls. It's too dark, want to paint light. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Here's a great site to purchase black and white checkered floor

They have it in small width size and large width size for small or large projects. Like kitchens & garages for the large size width and bathroom, laundry or car trailers for the small width. Only takes about a week to get.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Panelled Walls Dress Up Your Living Space
Board and batten wainscoting gives this entry a sophisticated feel. This look is just as easily at home in a country cottage as it is in this traditional home.
A painted runner in black and white checks adds interest to this entryway.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to The Wonders of Wainscoting
Here is another illustration of the same technique. This cathedral-height foyer uses paneling combined with a checkered floor to ground the space while a formidable chandelier takes full advantage of the soaring ceilings.

the opening to the left of this picture as wide as the opening between the LR and DR of our house. They used molding to frame out the opening. Also, the wainscoting in the room that it opens into is high, like I like.
