How to tear down old 70's chic ugly paneling without destroying the original wood wall?
I am redoing my kitchen and the previous owners put ugly paneling up at one point over what were once beautiful real wood walls from the late 1800's - Why on earth someone would do that is beyond me, but I really want to get rid of the paneling and get to the original walls without completely destroying them. This paneling is nailed down like every four inches all the way down and several times across - HELP! How do I get rid of it? and oh WHY did people do stupid stuff like this? I could cry lol
All you will need is a molding bar and pry bar. Most of that type of paneling is installed with flimsy finishing nails. Use the molding bar to remove any trim and to start pulling the paneling. Then you will be able to get the flat bar behind it. More than likely once you get it started you'll be able to pull a whole panel off by hand.
You might also consider punching the nails through. It's less likely to damage what is underneath. You will need to fill the holes no matter what method you choose.
