I know everybody hates painting oak white, but i just moved into a home with lots of oak Paneling on the walls and a oak fireplace. I am a contemporary girl who actually thinks that the white oak will fit my new look! My walls are two shades of light grey and a dark grey accent wall. I also have white floor boards and white casings. My accessory color is teal. Please Help...
What is the best way to go about this????
Are you asking how to paint the walls?
or what colours you should use?
I would clean the wood with tsp, prime and 2 coats of paint. You can fill the panelling edges in as well, depends how perfect you want the wall to look.
There you go.:thumbsup:
Rinse, the tsp, rinse it again, rinse it AGAIN
quality top coats
If you use TSP, yes, be sure to rinse well. And use a quality bonding primer. How old is the home Lindsy? I'm assuming this is oak panel as opposed to the thin sheet paneling that looks like oak. In older homes a lot of paneled wood was waxed and buffed, prior to poly finishes. Take a piece of 100 grit sandpaper and sand some of the wood. If it was waxed the sandpaper will begin to clog with wax. I would try that and get back with the results.
