    Use acrylic latex paint. Prime with a stain blocking primer like Zinsser 123 or BIN. Then paint with your color. If the paneling has grooves you can fill then with drywall patching compound. Let that dry overnight. Next day go over the patch with a damp sponge to smooth it out. Then paint.

    Yes!! I have done this several times. Be sure to properly prep before you start. Remove all nails etc and sand the paneling around the area and fill with wood putty. Be sure your paneling is free of dust etc. then use a good primer/paint and it will look awesome!!
