Wood Paneling Makeover: DIY Aged Plaster
I wanted a cottage look for the house and this treatment worked well to get the feel that I wanted.
The aged plaster application is great for covering wood paneling without having to remove it. It can also be used on drywall and vinyl panels.
- The aged plaster treatment hides a lot of blemishes, gouges, and holes in walls.
- It is essential to use a super adhering primer before applying the ’plaster’/drywall compound. It’s pretty easy to do, but takes some time.
- Because it is done in multiple layers, there is a lot of drying time between each step and will take several days.
- The plaster look was done on the upper 2/3rds of the wall.
- Tongue in groove pine panel board (aka ’car siding‘) was used as wainscoting.
After the prep work has dried you can start on the process to achieve the aged plaster look on your wood paneling.
