MY HUSBAND WAS VERY AFRAID FOR ME TO PAINT OUR KITCHEN WALL OF OAK PANELING.
HE IS ESTATIC WITH THE RESULTS AFTER SAYING NO FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I MATCHED THE BOTTOM OF THE WALL WITH OUR CABINET COLOR, SAGE GREEN. PAINTED A CHAIR RAIL THE SAME SAGE GREEN AND PAINTED THE TOP PORTION OF THE PANELING WITH AN ADOBE COLOR. IT LOOK GREAT, KIND OF COUNTRY FRENCH.
A PAINTER FRIEND OF OURS SAID ALL THAT PREP REALLY WASN'T NECESSARY. ALL WE HAD TO DO IS WASH
THE WALL WITH SPIC AND SPAN, WE DIDN'T EVEN SPACKLE AND SAND THE SMALL NAIL HOLES. THE ONES THAT DIDN'T FILL WITH PAINT, GIVE CHARACHTER TO THE WALL. THE PANEL LOOKS LIKE BARNYARD PLANKS THAT HAVE BEEN WEATHERED THEN PAINTED OVER. WE LOVE THE EFFECT AND IT DRAMATICALLY CHANGED THE LOOK OF OUR NEW KITCHEN.
GOOD LUCK
