How do I paint over stained paneling?
I recently took up the carpet on our steps to the finished basement but now I see that the old paneling looks so faded and old next to the pretty steps. Wondering the best way to paint this paneling. It's 59-60 yrs old, made of fir and was stained. Best thing to clean it with ? Best type of paint. Should I paint it the same color as the trim? In the process of painting all the window trim and baseboards a antique white.
Steps are finished oak.
