Walls

Hi!

I live in an old trailer where all the walls and all the carpets are brown. The walls seems to have a gloss on them and they're the "wood pattern" kind. I've been thinking of trying to paint over the panels since I've seen a house where this was done successfully. Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? What colors could I go for to brighten up the rooms and make the trailer seem bigger? I can't afford to do anything about the ugly carpets but I figure the walls would make a world of a difference.

Thanks!

if you haven't already talked to the paint store, or you haven't started you work on the wall - I would recommend sanding the walls first. Having a glossy surface can be difficult for even primer to stick to!

I agree with the creamy white, I think it would be pretty with a dark carpet, and will really open up your space.
