It was the era of wood panelling in our homes so we would have that rich feel of wood on our walls - trouble was it made our rooms very dark! but some white shag carpeting, perhaps some pole lamps.... Later on people painted them white prior to ripping the panelling out entirely in favor of white or pastel colors. You might try formica?

I agree, very classy. Looking at all the pictures there are great ideas out there. If you have a table saw and a belt sander, or better yet if mahogany slats are sold pre milled it would not be all that difficult with a waterproof glue. I have never seen stainless finishing nails, perhaps brass nails.

I used wallpaper, the vinyl kind that is made for bathrooms and kitchens and other high-humidity applications, and the heavy duty paste. The effect is great, but I'm lousy with wallpapering at home, let alone on the boat. I've thought of taking it off and having a professional redo it. The interior is much brighter and the wallpaper has held up for several years now, but the cuts and joining work is amateur--because, well, I'm an amateur.

The advantage is that the formica is not altered by sanding or whatever. If it didn't work out, I knew that the water-based wallpaper paste would just wash off. You still have to remove all the wall-mounted stuff. I broke toothpicks and put them in the screw wholes for clocks, etc. so that when the wallpaper was applied, the toothpicks punched through the paper and showed me where to screw things back in.
