    Do u mean the fake wood paneling? Or like shiplap?

    Mid it’s the fake paneling, u can use simple joint compound to fill in all the lines, then sand and paint. If it’s shiplap, bygod paint it white and enjoy it!! Lol!

    Good luck!

      Been there done that! Just make sure u prime first or use a good paint+primer like kilz. If it’s “fake” wood don’t sand, unless ur using REALLY low grit sandpaper(like200+)

    Wood does not take paint well unless you prime it first. I use Kilz
