The family room was the last room in the house to be painted since we moved in over seven years ago. The existing 35+ year old faux-wood panelling had seen much better days, with scratches and fading from the sun. When we took down the panelling we were left with some surprises underneath - no drywall and little if any insulation on the outside walls.
So began the renovation....taking down old paneling, insulating and dry-walling. New baseboards were needed as the existing ones were plastic wood and broke easily.
Here are some before and after pics.
