Most people can get behind a little vintage wood decor, but even mid-century can go wrong when it’s not cared for properly. Brandy and Steve Hattendorf were not sure what to do about their dated multi-purpose room and breakfast nook, but they knew that the wall-to-wall wood paneling had to go. After years of wear and tear, it was time for an update in the family room where they spend so much of their time. Host Jordan Carlos and Glidden paint expert Jeremy Bohley assessed the space and decided give the room an entirely fresh update.
Bohley stressed the need for prep work to thoroughly cover the paneling. Thanks to a coat of Glidden’s heavy duty Gripper Primer and some spackling paste in the seams between the panels, it was possible to cover the wood and make it ready for painting. After the paint dried other end of the process, Bohley recommended a semi-gloss Diamond top coat to make their breakfast nook area kid- and activity-proof. Thanks to their due diligence, the Hattendorfs were able to confidently pick a light green to open up their space, knowing it would stay pristine. See how they revamped their room.
