    Cost to Paint and Glaze Paneling


    By Gene and Katie Hamilton

    If dark paneling in a room is aching for a facelift, you can rip it off or finish it with paint and glaze. Removing it from the walls is a major job that involves tearing out the paneling and installing new wallboard, woodwork and trim. For a faster and more affordable transformation, consider painting and glazing the paneling to create a colorful alternative. The project involves several processes, including cleaning, sanding, priming, painting and glazing the paneling, all skills a handy homeowner can master.

    A painting contractor who specializes in decorative finishes will charge $441 to do the job in a small 10- by-12-foot paneled room. This includes labor and material. You can buy the materials sandpaper, primer, paint, glaze and mineral spirits, brushes, roller, pan and sponges for $105 and do it yourself saving 76 percent. It’s time intensive, but well worth the effort. You’ll also need dropcloths, masking aids and a power sander.

    Before you start the job consider the time required between phases to allow for the drying time. Try to empty the room of furnishings or at least move things to the center of the room so you have easy access to the paneling. Use heavy dropcloths to cover the floor and painter’s masking tape and paper to protect other surfaces. You’ll need plenty of ventilation, too.

    If you don’t have the time or desire to paint, you can find a painting contractor who has the skills and tools to do it right. Click
