    I had the same problem for over ten years this solid brick wall that sucked every beam of light into it's dark hole. I struggled with options i.e. drywall over, ship lap over all costing money to cover what someone had paid big bucks for. We were also in the process of removing a wall, repainting and new carpet. Finally one day I took the plunge and began whitewashing, the price was right had paint and water, a bucket and brush.

    Nothing more to say than let there be light!
