plywood walls

Hi! What are my options for finishing plywood walls in my bedroom?

Well they could be painted of course, and I've primed garage walls with plywood on them & then shot a spray & knock-down texture on them. You could also put on a skim coat of mud with a roller, then either primer & paint or wallpaper.

However, I just don't like the idea of plywood covered bedroom walls, what if there's ever a fire!! You'd never get the plywood walls past the fire & bldg codes in most areas of the US. IMO I wouldn't have it, just way too much of a fire hazard. I'd cover them with drywall, then finish it to suit.
