I am remodeling my daughter's basement which will be a toy room for her 3 young kids. The present walls have wood paneling on them and I want her to paint them, which she is fine with that. On the bottom of the walls I have started to put on a wainscoting type of panel which goes up to 36" off the floor. When I put the panels next to each other there is a small gap that doesn't look the greatest. I am planning to use a caulk to fill those slots then paint over the panels and the caulk. What type caulk would be best for that or is there a better way to finish the panels. I have two walls totaling about 20 feet up so far with about another 30 feet to go. Thank you for any suggestions.

Assuming the panels are well secured caulking will work well. I'd use a siliconized acrylic latex caulk [it's paintable]
