Question

I would like to paint over the paneling in my living room. What do I need to do to prep the paneling and what type of paint should I use? I did this in a previous house and it turned out badly when we used a basic primer and latex paint without any prep. Pleas help!

nilgeh,


Go to your local paint/ home improvement store and as for something called liquid sandpaper. This stuff is great!
follow all the directions on the can (well ventilate for sure). Use a good quality oilbased stain blocker/primer ( I use kilz) And then paint I have used this system at my wifes studio and the paint has held up great!

Let me know if this helps you out any!
