1945 Cottage-Walls/Ceiling Questions
Hi, I'm a new owner of a slightly rustic 1945 cottage. I'm going to be doing some remodeling soon, but thought I'd ask you experts here some questions first!
There were some additions after the house was built, but it's hard to figure out when things were done.
The walls have some sort of weird black drywall that is coated with a paper, and the ceilings have squares of particle board? and strips of it as well. I'm leaning toward redoing the ceilingswith beadboard, and not sure whether to coat the drywall? with something to hide all the very visible seams and peeling surface, or just put drywall over it. Anyone famililar with these surfaces and ceiling types I'd appreciate input. If this is something timeless and unique I should leave, please let me know, but to me it looks like something that could be improved! Thanks!
