Yes, you can difinitely paint wall paneling. I would suggest a paint that is not flat so that if you want to clean it then it will be much easier. I had a brown paneling that was painted white some years back. You will have no problem.

What do you fill the cracks of paneling in with before you paint it?

You will get better results if you aim your effort at removing the paneling and preparing the wall board or plaster behind it. Paneling, even if you fill the grooves, will have waves. If I were going to leave the paneling on because it was applied with adhesive that created excessive damage to the wall behind it, I would put 1/4" drywall panels over it and tape and spackle.

Wall Paneling Easy To Install?

Wall paneling is easy to install, even for novice do-it-yourselfers. Before installing the paneling, let it set in the room for at least a day to adjust to the humidity level. Paneling will absorb moisture from the air, so it's important to allow room for expansion. Leave small gaps along the top, bottom and sides of each sheet. If the wall shows through between the cracks, use a marker to fill in the space so it's not noticeable.

What will remove poision from wall paneling that is not wood paneling?

Depends entirely on the toxin. Asbestos, an integral part of older wallboard, can't be removed -- you need to have a trained crew strip out the board itself. Lead-based paint -- I *think* -- can be removed. If you accidentally spilled Ant Bait on your wall, you can wipe it off carefully yourself. No way to answer this better without knowing the toxin and ideally the substrate or walling material.

How do you remove old English oil polish from panling to paint?

Unfortunately, because Old English is an oil based product with dark stain in it, you will not be able to remove it from the paneling. However, if you are wanting to paint the paneling, the best thing to do would be to apply a 'stain killer' to the paneling first, such as Kilz, available at your local hardware or paint store. This also works well to block any 'stain' that is on your walls before painting, such as lipstick, ink, pencil, etc. and prevent the stain from bleeding through the new paint.

What is the best way to paint brown wood paneling?

First apply a good, even coat of primer (kilz interior primer/sealer works well on paneling) Once the primer has dried completely you will be able to see clearly where any holes or cracks are in the paneling, as you will want to fill any such voids before you apply the paint. When the primer is dry and all the nail, tack and screw holes are filled you can then apply the paint. I like to use a short nap fleece roller cover for surfaces like paneling. The fleece (sheep skin) rollers are a little more expensive but they do not spatter paint everywhere like other roller covers and they last a lot longer.

Paint initially sticks to the wall or other substrates (paintable surfaces) due to the ionic bonding that exists between the wall and the paint. As paint begins to dry, then the properties of the paint come into play and allow the paint to adhere to the surface.
