Use joint compound over grooves in paneling that have already been painted ?
Hello Everyone! I hope someone here can help me out about a painting predicament. Can I use joint compound over grooves in paneling that have already been painted? Do I have to redo all of this? I filled in grooves, it was sanded down too much, but another guy painted it anyway. I want this fixed right. I have joint compound and plan on doing it myself. Do I have to resand ? Can't I just fill in where the gaps are in the grooves only. Do I need to put it all over the wall plus the grooves. Can I use caulking in a tube. Will the paint look the same. I have a semigloss. On another note: I used flat paint in the living room, kitchen and bedroom and left the grooves. However, I think I should have used satin, because the first day I put pictures up the wiring made mark on the wall. I stopped until I found out what to do about this as well. Sorry, this is really two different questions, but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to retrieve this screen and I am sleepy again, and doing things quick way...LOL. Thanks anyone to help. I can just paint on living room with flat paint with semi-gloss without sanding I think? :whistling2:
