  • The window and molding will have to be removed. Insulate the space left behind, and if that's paneling around it, cut another piece to match the hole and install it. Use joint compound on the edges and sand. Paneling lines can also be filled-in before painting with joint compound.

    Remove the paneling, drywall the room. Fill the hole in with insulation, drywall over it. Also, if you're going to paint, use multiple coats, that looks like a 5 year old painted.

    Take off the molding remove the window and if the other side is an exterior wall you need to insulate. If on a tight budget use joint compound to go over all the lines. The best thing would be, remove the paneling and drywall. Idea for your window hole is inset shelf or prep for shelf and cover with a hinged wall picture and use it for a hidden storage.

  • Measure it and put a television or computer monitor, in it.

    My sister painted the paneling in my parents house using stripes, just one shade lighter, it seemed to tone down the lines in the paneling and brought dimension to the room???
