Again, I would not label or consider it a a permanant soluation, however, I would consider it a temporary and cost effective improvement for some people (not for others).

Would I do it in my own home? I did it in my first house (for the reasons that I listed above) and was very pleased with the outcome, even after 10+ years that I lived there. Not one house guest ever had any idea that there was panelling on that particular room's walls. I've sinced moved.

As stated: Clean the paneling, re-nail & caulk the seams, and treat it with oil-based Kilz or Binz. Later, apply seam tape over joints, and drywall compound over the channels and again over the seams. Coat and sand smooth (just like drywall). Prime & Paint.

It works if it is done right and can hold up for a surprising length of time.

Good Luck.
I don't believe that part was stated anywhere, but probably is the most important. The primer will not stick to liquid gold(wax) that is probably on there.

painting over paneling


If you are simply looking for paint the paneling, it is not as difficult as you may think. Be sure to put down a primer first but then you can simply paint right over it. If you want to make your paneling look like a regular wall, you will have to make it a flat service by getting rid of the small indents and crevasses between each and every piece of panneling. Also, some panneling, if it was not put up when the house was built, was simply glued on on top of the wall. If this is the case, you can invite some friends over and just destroy the panneling, carefully ripping it off the wall piece by piece. This can be very time consuming and you want to be sure not to ruin the wall or leave bumpy glue. There are many options but it all depends on the cirumstances and what results you may be looking for.

Kilz is not a bonding primer. You need a bonding primer on paneling. Zinsser Cover Stain, kilz's competitor, is, among other Zinsser products.

I"m not too sure how much you want to get into this project, but most walpaper companies have a product designed to cover wallpaper to create a paintable service. Unfortunately it adds another step to the process. I have seen it done, and there are no lines visible on the panel when completed. I did not however see the process. I'd check with the local wall paper dealer for their input.
