covering wood?

Me and my family are moving into a new house and my room is half wall and half wood. I dont think the owner will le me paint on the wood, is there a way i can paint it without ruining it?

you mean you've got wood paneling on the lower part of the wall (called wainscot) and regular drywall on the top half?

if the owner doesn't want the paneling painted, you can't paint it. period. i wouldn't even attempt to cover it with anything. if he'll let you, just repaint the upper drywall part in a color you like.

what's so bad about the paneling? is it stained or already painted a color you don't like?
