How to Paint Wood Paneling - No Sanding Required

When we bought our house we had a room that had several walls of old/ugly wood paneling. I knew tearing it down would be way too expensive and a bigger project than I could take on with a new baby at home in the winter. So we opted to paint it instead! I didn't want to sand it since we couldn't open windows and it would have been a HUGE mess. So I figured out a way to do it with NO SANDING! However, if you have a glossy finish on your wood paneling, you would probably want to lightly sand before applying the primer.
