    I have a dividing wall between my lounge and stairway which is wooden panelling. I'd like to plasterboard & plaster it but it's not very thick so I don't think I could use plasterboard screws without them going through the wall and out the other side. What would be the best way to fix plasterboard to this wall?

    how thick is it? its got to be thick enough for say 25mm or 32mm drywall screws surley 12.5 mm will be taken up by the plasterboard leaving you 12.5mm- 19mm thickness for the screw into the frame, your frame cant be that thin

    It is just literally wooden panelling, I'd say no more than about 20mm thick (and that's probably being generous).

    The panelling is very battered so can't just be painted over, it definitely needs to be covered somehow to give a nice finish to the wall but, as I have zero DIY knowledge I'm not sure what my options are.

    Any ideas would be hugely appreciated as, due to limited budget, I'd like to be able to figure out some way to get it done between myself and friends if at all possible.

    ok lets just say you have 20mm thickness
    if you use 25mm screws 12.5 mm is taken up by the board so that leaves 12.5 of the screwgoing into the studwork or if you use 9.5mm board you will have15.5mm going into the studwork, where is the problem?
