Consequently, can you put beadboard over paneling?
Place the beadboard on the wall, over the top of the existing paneling. Use a pneumatic nail gun to nail the beadboard into place on the paneling. If you are using smaller panels of beadboard, place the tongue of each panel into the groove of the previous panel.
No glue would be necessary. It is almost 3/4" thick so you will need to plan on a little edge trim to tame it down. BTW, unless you have installed perlins in the wall, the planks will run horizontally.
