    Anyone know the best way..

    To paint paneling?

    I have cheeseball paneling in my bedroom (I live on the 3rd floor of an old house) and I'm going to paint over it. I picked up paint, primer and a boatload of spackle... Any pointers?

    A few nights? BAH! You're a fuckin' amateur man!


    On a serious note, I'd just prime/paint it. a few coats of primer will make it easier with the regular paint. It'll still sorta look like paneling, just not the wood color obviously. Painted paneling looks a TON better than the standard wood grain, IMO.

    yea we spackled the grain look out of some paneling once, its a lot more work than its worth, its easier to take it down and re-sheetrock it.

    I'm in agreement there. Spackling sucks if you have any significant surface area to cover.

    It really depends on how you want it to look when you're done. If you're looking to make it look like a 'real' wall, fuck the spackle. Get some joint compound (not THAT kind!) and fill in the gaps like you would with drywall. Then you'll need more of a 'glaze' than a 'primer' to seal the panelling and prevent the fresh paint from soaking in. I've also seen people just glaze it, then paint over it using alternating colors for each 'panel'. Does any of that make any sense?
