From blah to beautiful ...Better Homes and Gardens brings a gallery of living room photos. Some of these tranformations are amazing. Some paneling, bead board, paint, and voila. I especially like the idea of covering up a popcorn textured ceiling with bead board - a lovely solution to a very difficult problem (removing popcorn texture is a TOUGH job). Take a look at the photos here.
Editors Note: Photo from BHG.com. I also apologize for their frequent popups - if you can bear with it, the photos are worth seeing.
