How to paint over gray paneling


Got a picture?
Is there a glossy finish on it?
At a minimum it needs to be degreased, lightly sanded, cleaned again, primed with a bonding primer then 2, coats of finish paint.
And you end up with what looks like painted paneling.

What's the look you really would like?

After completion of painting, finishing must be done. It makes it look better.
