Painting drywall and wood paneling
We have atrocious 70's fake wood paneling going up our stairwell and into our finished attic. Pretty sure that it's possible to paint it, but a friend told me that even with primer the paint will rub right off (is a fairly high traffic area). Also, our upstairs is a finished attic, but they didn't finish off the walls (I'm pretty sure it's the drywall as you can see the tape between the wall panels. Is there a way to disguise that to make it look more finished (other than wall paper)...was thinking of some kind of stucco type situation, but I don't want to make it look even cheesier than it already does. thanks!!
