    You should be able to paint it. Fill those gaps with wood putty, then sand down for a smooth finish. Just be sure to use a good primer and you should be able to paint it however you like! You can stencil, decoupage, mosaic, or put pretty much anything on it to change the look.

    Yes! After you fill the gaps, sand, prime, then paint: remember to apply 6-7 coats of PolyAcrylic for a hard, shiny, durable finish....
