The house we bought (mid 70's brick home) apparently had paneling in just about every room. I have to admit, they were very creative in covering it up. Wallpaper in one room and painted in another with a chair railing below. But in the master bedroom, it seems they put a coat of some sort of plaster and then painted. I thought at first we had sheet rock, but it's plaster. Well, the plaster cracked in a line from ceiling to floor along every paneling seam. When we first moved in we just spackled the cracks, sanded and painted. It lasted for a while, but they have all recracked. It seems a more permanent fix is needed. Since we want to change colors anyway, I am ready to do something, but don't know what that is. Any ideas? Simple is better, but will do whatever it takes.
