Can You Paint Wood Paneling?

I want to update my room, but I don’t really want to rip out the dark wood paneling, what can I do?

1. Clean it with TSP (trisodium phosphate).  This will clean any dirt off the surface.

2. Prime it.  Apply 1 coat of a qualtiy primer to ensure proper adhesion.

3. Fill nail holes as needed with wood filler and sand smooth.

4. Clean with cloth or vacuum sanding dust off the surface.

5. Caulk the gaps as needed and let the caulk dry.

6. Paint it with 2 coats of your ideal color sheen and enjoy your new look!

If you don't want to take on this do-it-yourself painting project yourself, please contact us and we happily provide you a free estimate!

Brooks Painting is everything you would want. Excellence! Always on time. Great work!

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)

Chris and Gabriel were amazing. Corey was patient and helpful in answering questions and while I decided on colors. The office was easy to contact and had good follow-through. Thank you so much to Brooks for a job I could not possibly be happier with. Feel free to use me as a reference!

My experience with Brooks Painting has been outstanding, and, if it were an option on Google, I would assign 100 stars to their work. Mark and his crew were exceptional in painting both the inside and outside of my Central Davis home. They were considerate, careful, and respectful of my furnishings and yard. Kristen and her office staff were also responsive to my queries and were timely in scheduling the work. Thank you Brooks Painting for assisting in transforming my house into a beautiful home!
