Recently had the basement waterproofed where the bottom 4 feet of the basement was taken back to the block. In one storage room I had paneling and I saved the bottom 4 feet to re-use. Now, I see the nicks and marks on this old paneling and wonder if, since it is just a storage room, I can re-apply the bottom and then paint over all the paneling. I would use flat molding to cover the seam.
In a finished basement, in what would be used as a storage room, would painted paneling hurt the sale of the house? paint would cost a gallon of paint, new paneling would be $300.
Thanks in advance. Bob
