Sawn timber (saematerjal)is sold in various ways in the sense that it is either rough-sawn or planed size. Sometimes, people purchase wood rough sawn and they do not know that the dimensions will still be further reduced after some kind of processing has been carried out on it. For planed wood, it is smooth on all sides, and most times the labels of the dimensions on the planed wood are not the same with its actual size. There are various ways through which one can hide a wood panelling. One of the ways of doing that is by repainting the old wood panelling.
lining board (Voodrilaud) and floor boards can be revived by painting it, what you do to repaint is that, you cover every part of the furniture that you do not want paint to touch with a masking tape, and cover the floor with newspapers or other kinds of papers. This is done so that paint will not touch where it is not supposed to touch. Many people end up disfiguring their complete building by painting without procedures. This makes the house or area look more scattered, instead of newspapers, sometimes, a drop cloth can be placed on the floor.
In addition to this, as an individual, if you are the one doing the painting, you have to cover yourself appropriately also, by using hand gloves and other kinds of clothing that you know you can discard after used.
