Yo, Ya'll! I'm hoping someone could offer me advice on wall finishing. The house I just bought is finished on the inside with wood wall paneling, some of it is real wood veneer over wood sheets and some of it is masonite with a simulated wood face. From an aesthetic preference, the paneling has got to go. Instead of tearing all of the paneling down and replacing it with sheetrock (a financial kick in the teeth) I tried floating the entire wall with drywall mud, the goal being to hide/fill the grooves before I prime and paint. It didn't work. Even with a thick, deliberately troweled texture made with the float knife, the grooves are plain as day. How can I make the grooves disappear? Should I put a second coat of mud over the first and just try to make it really thick? Or should I fill the grooves with something else? Thanks!
