Thanks so much, COASTROAD! Appreciate the painting info - wasn't sure on how to proceed. Good to know. I kind of want to stay away from the "beaded" look ...but I like the simple "tongue-and-groove" .... I don't want my kitchen to look "country" or "cottage"...would not work with my cabinets. Thanks again!

We are installing beadboard at our cottage and I've found 12" wide panels of MDF which is preprimed and buffed so its extra smooth for a finish coat of paint. Our contractor intends to run a small bead of caulk at each seam so that it won't show if it separates a bit once its hung. They sell different widths of bead but all the planks are 12" wide. 4, 3 and 2 bead are available - so approximately 6" between beads, 4" between beads and 3" between beads. They are available at Muskoka Lumber which has several locations in the Muskoka area - Bracebridge, Port Carling, Huntsville etc. Available in lengths up to 18' so those with high ceilings can make it seamless. Can't wait to see it done!
