Cheap Way to Cover Cinderblock Walls


Hey everyone,

I'm trying to cover up my cinderblock walls on a limited budget and with limited time for installation.

What I'm thinking about right now is getting some of these panels:

And just painting over them. Easy enough, but I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts? Anyone have experience working with this kind of panel? Or other suggestions?

It looks like you still need furring strips. At $21 for a 4x8 sheet for this stuff, drywall and would be easily half the cost

Yeah I was planning on skipping the furring strips here...it's more of a temporary fix. You think I'd still need them with this?
