I have Pine panelling in a 50 year old home which is 5/8 tounge and groove. i'm looking for an easy way out. I don'twant to rip it down, and i don't want to drywall over it. Will it accept paint,stain???? Any ideas would help
I'm no expert here, but I would think you could use a primer and then paint over it. Without seeing it I wouldn't guess if you could stain it. As always test an inconspicuous spot before you start.
Did you ever think about putting new paneling right over top of the stuff that's there right now? I don't know what it would hurt.
