Finish nail holes and seams with wood putty. Once the putty has dried, sand holes and seams smooth. If you plan to paint the paneling, attach painter's tape along the wall to protect the wall where the final paint application will be applied.
If you plan to stain the paneling, the first coat of stain should be applied before the wood putty. Wood putty comes in a variety of colors. Choose the tint that matches the stain. Lightly sand the dried putty smooth and touch up the stain over the sanded area.
