Covering Camper Wall Panels
Camper wall panels – If you prefer a more elegant solution to cover your panels, consider using fabric. It may seem like a weird idea, but the fabric acts as a kind of wallpaper that you can remove when you want to change the look of your room. Begin by washing panels to remove any dirt or residues that may be on the surface. Choose a light fabric, like gingham, polished cotton or chintz, in a color or pattern that you like and cut it to fit panel-clad parts of the room. Use starch or a spray stiffener to adhere the fabric to the wall. If you use starch, apply it to the wall with a roller or sponge.
Place the fabric on the wall, leveling it as you go. Press the pin in the camper wall panels to hold the fabric in place until the starch dries. Apply another layer of starch on top of the fabric, print any bubbles as you go. Continue until you have covered all panels with fabric. To remove the fabric, work a corner loosely and gently pull it off into sections.
You can completely mask the look of the camper wall panels by covering it with plaster clay. Remove wall trim and cover panels with a primer. Gypsum clay does not completely fill the grooves in panels, but you can even out areas using adhesive gypsum tape to cover the seams. Use roles to apply plaster clay to panels, rolling over each section a few times to achieve even consistency. Allow the mud to dry overnight. Apply a further layer of primer and apply color to your chosen shade.
