Covering Wood panelling
I just got through painting the paneling in my utility room and kitchen. I painted with a 3/4 in. nap roller and I did not have to paint the grooves with a brush. Once I got the hang of it, it went fast. For the grooves, I painted across the paneling working the roller back and forth into the grooves. At first my wife didnot want to paint the paneling, she wanted to put sheetrock over the paneling, finish it, than paint. Ofcourse, she wasn't doing any of the work, she would just supervise. After I painted the paneling, she liked it. I had wallpaper over that paneling but over the years, the paper was looking bad. Under the wallpaper, I had a thick backing ( didnot fill in the grooves), so taking the wall paper off was a breeze. Taking the glue off the paneling was a little bit harder but not a problem.
