I continuously tell both buyers and sellers alike.....it is amazing what a difference painted paneling can make! Walk into a home that has the dark paneling from the 70's and you are immediately transported back to another era. How can you convert those dark rooms into modern rooms that are admired by all? Just a couple pails of paint will do ya!. I found a great article that will help you get to that point. WARNING! Trying this....might make you fall in love with your home all over again!
