    "Tongue and groove" IS wood!! Sheesh!

    Oh and learn to spell please! It's "tongue and groove". After reading your other posts, spelling is what you should worry about my friend. Not the man on TV who "knows what he's doing".

    Very disapointing! I was hoping for some real info regarding real paneling, groves, dark color and all.

    SINCE THE ARTICLE IS BLANK I CAN TELL YOU WHAT I DID JUST LAST WEEK. I HAVE VERY OLD DARK PANELING IN MY BASEMENT. I WANTED TO UPDATE THE AREA SO I APPLIED A GOOD PRIMER, 2 COATS AND FOLLOWED WITH 2 COATS OF A BUTTER YELLOW PAINT. I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS. IT LOOKS GREAT, THERE IS NO SHOW THROUGH OF THE OLD PANELING. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE THE GROVES YOU CAN FILL THEM IN WITH SPECKLE AND WIPE DOWN TO A SMOOTH SURFACE. I DON'T MIND THE LOOK IT ADDS TO THE FINISH. I AM NOW GOING TO DO THE SAME IN MY ENTIRE BASEMENT........

    Thank You , The guy who thought tongue and groove and paneling are the same thing made me laugh ...To many years around wood gets to you after a bit . Knotty pine will always bleedd thru in time I never really found anything that covers with out bleeding thru some time down the road ..

    Thank You Again

    To the person making fun of me ... I can tell you this I know the difference between paneling and tongue and groove pine...paneling comes in 4x8 sheets tongue and groove knoty pines comes in many long sizes but is narrow width...Please get and education take this picture to home depot and prove me wrong ...I work 20 + hrs a day if I do not spell something to your satisfaction well lets just say you have too much time on your hands and you need to get another job ...I would not hire this guy to do anything since he does not know the difference in panel and knoty pine
