What steps must I take to paper over wood paneling? The paneling is 1970 vintage and beautiful; however, it is just so dark and gloomy. Need to brighten things up and modernize. Thanks

rjamatt, There are a couple of ways to paper paneling. one is to prime first with BITE PRIMER, Zinsser Universal Wallcovering Primer or R-35. All oils and any other bleeders must be removed because these products promote adhesion but have no stainkilling properties. At this point hang a liner and then paper. The other method is to prime with an oil based primer, fill the grooves(3 times), sand, seal with one of the primers mentioned in the first method and hang....Mike
