Painted Paneling B&A Photos!

I recently asked the question What Would You Do In This Space?  about a dark, paneled space that I encouraged the sellers to paint.  Thankfully they were on board with that recommendation.  I staged the room as I originally wanted, as a sitting room, not a dining space.  These pictures show the power of paint to freshen up an outdated room!  Unfortunately, the trim and woodwork was not painted white as I suggested (that will need to be fixed) but I still think the transformation is tremendous.  The color used is Sherwin Williams Softer Tan SW6141.

Judie, et al....

How do you prep, process and paint the dated wood paneling?

Steps...

1) wash/scrub paneling (remove dirt, grease, etc.)
2) lightly sand paneling
3) prime paneling
4) paint paneling


Anything else?

Diane - I've never personally painted the paneling, we hire professionals for the work.  But I would assume you've got the process down correctly... anyone else have anything to add???

I am reblogging this so I can point some clients to these pictures.  While some may still like the dark paneling, most do not.  I have one on the market with it- maybe seeing these pictures will either help encourage someone to buy or for the seller to paint.

Christine and Jennifer - Thanks and I hope it helps.  It really is such a minimal investment for such a huge return!

Looks fabulous! I was wondering of Kathy P's and Jackson W's pictures (at the top) are for real? Or a joke? What a couple of goof balls!
