Ideas for updating wood paneling
All wallpaper books have the instructions when wallpapering over panelling.I pick this up to put on 'failing walls' on older house walls.The room looks great and it has been about 5 years. Sandy from Pittsburgh My dining room has wood (the real stuff) paneling and I want to give it a face lift.
We just used Kilz primer and Benjamin Moore taupe colored paint.I had kinda hoped that it would stick good and I could possibly paint over it some day.In my hallway, I applied Kilz again and then painted the walls a light creamy color. Last year, hubby and I decided to see what was under the paneling in our living room.It was very easy to do and really brightened up the room.We also used MDF for crown moulding and baseboard.(very easy to paint and to work with in general).
