I rent a house. We are not allowed to make permanent changes to the house, but our living room has ugly old wood paneling on the main wall and small adjacent wall (other walls are drywall covered with white paint.) What we are thinking of doing is buying cheap drywall and temporarily putting a fake wall over the existing one so we can cover up the paneling and be able to paint the wall. What I want to know is if there are better options to go about this. Whatever I do has to be removed and the wall restored to its original condition.
It’s wood paneling, cant paint it…

BTW the landlord WON’T let us
I guess I didn’t clarify very well.
I want to paint the wall, hence the drywall to make a fake wall over it. What I’m really after is alternative to drywall to do this.
No wall behind it, it IS the wall.
