We have lived here for 5 years and are finally trying to fix up this large 4 season / sun porch room. It is insulated and climate controlled.

The wood is not in that bad of shape..but there are some minor paint spots on it from the previous owner and some scratches from their dogs. I kinda think it would look nicer to just paint it white like I am going to paint the walls and ceiling. However, I know it will need an oil based primer and overall probably be a giant PITA to paint. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions..I'd be open to also putting a clear coat on it if that made it look nicer / cleaner. Just - whatever I use needs to be OK for an interior setting since it's connected to the rest of the house.

I appreciate any ideas.

Just prime the paneling with a stain sealing primer - preferably shellac based (smelly but effective), and then paint with a quality interior acrylic latex of your choice. You will still likely see the knots and, of course, the grooves, but it’s wood so… . Done all the time.
