Texture painting over paneling, Help??


Hi people,
House built in 1976. Owner builder drywalled then paneled with grooved plywood paneling as was the rage back then.
I can pull the paneling off and mud the drywall, but it is glued with what looks like liquid nails and peels off a layer of paper. Not all the paper just a thin film comes off.
I have been reading up on filling grooves and painting over the paneling and wondered if I could then do that textured finish I see on modern drywall.
Is that something that would stick to the paneling after a good clean then prep with Zinsser 1-2-3 latex primer??
Thanks in advance.

Dave, I can't do that wrote:

I have painted paneling using the Zinsser primer and the paint did stick very well. I have never used the textured paint though. I didn't fill in the grooves. Just painting in the grooves was tedious enough for me.

I dont see an issue with using a textured paint over a properly primed ply.
My concern would be , is this the thin ply panelling that is actually a printed paper surface and can you fill the grooves so there wont be cracks as the panelling expands and contracts.

why bother? just rip off the paneling and install 1/4 " drywall then paint it. better job and no repair work later.

Thanks to all who responded.
I was unaware of the wall liner and 1/4 drywall. I will investigate further.
The filler "mud" for the grooves is a poly-stuff that is supposed to expand and contract with the plywood paneling, but I must say the wall liner and 1/4" drywall seem better options.

If you are going to skim coat the paneling, why not do it right and pull it off and skim coat the drywall?
