Wallpaper over paneling??

We have a room in my parents house that is all paneling which was partially wallpapered over. However when we removed the wallpaper all the glue stayed on. We are wondering what to do to remove the glue or maybe texture paint or any ideas at all to hide the mess & make the room look decent.

I'd remove the outdated paneling, YUK! Definately get rid of it. Then repair and repaint the walls behind the paneling.

Tina,

 

All wallpaper pastes are water soluble. Assuming your paneling has a good coat of varnish on it, the paste should dissolve and wash off with water, leaving a clean surface.
