How to Finish Particle Board Wall

Hey all, I'm brand new to this forum and want to say thank you in advance for your help!
We just had a bathroom built, and for budget purposes they put particle board on the outside of the new bathroom wall. You can see it in the picture below.
We want to make our laundry room more inviting and cozy, how can we paint or otherwise make this wall look better?

How to Finish Particle Board Wall

#1 That's OSB not partical board.
#Why that and not sheetrock
Sheetrock would have been just as cheap.
Not a geat look and will never be flat but you can prime and paint it or go over it with poly..

How to Finish Particle Board Wall

When I lived in Ohio I used to go to an Amish man's home and the whole inside was finished with OSB with some kind of shiny finish on it. Got to say it was different. You can paint it, not a great look but better than bare "probably."
