We'd like to paint a texture paint over existing paneling. The paneling is glued on to the wall so to take it off and repair the walls would be a bigger than life project. What do we need to do to prepare the paneling to accept and retain the texture paint ? Is there anything we should do to fill in the grooves in the paneling ?? It is our plan to use a sand texture paint.

Thanks in advance

People paint over paneling all the time because it is such a pain to remove. You will need to make sure you dull the surface of the paneling so the paint will adhere properly. You can remove the gloss by putting on a chemical deglosser, otherwise simply lightly sanding down the surface is sufficient.

Some people like the grooves, or at least don't mind them when painted because they are less noticeable. I have heard of people putting wood putty/filler in the grooves or even plaster. I would think though that may crack. I am not confident on this portion of your question.
