    I lived in a house with dark wood paneling. It was so gloomy and made the place feel really small. I filled in all the cracks with spackle, sanded and painted. It took a while but it looked like regular walls when I finished.

    chalk paint it. Or use fusion paint but paint with fusion "grab it" dry then paint color of your choice. Check Pinterest as well just enter your question in search

    You could paint to lighten it. First calk all the cracks between the panels then use Aroma free Kilz paint to cover the wood. Then paint the colors you desire. It will lighten the room and make it feel larger.

    I used a primer and then painted mine. I even applied a border after filling in the crease of the paneling, just the width of where the border would be. This way it kept the border smooth.
