We just recently bought a house and the living room is done in a medium wood colored paneling. I am wanting to try painting over the paneling. Is this possible, and if so how?

Any help is appreciated!!!!

You certainly can paint your paneling. Whether it is actual wood or a plastic lamination on hardboard you should give it a coat of primer/sealer prior to your finish coat. This will seal actual wood resins from coming through your final coat or give the finish coat something to grab if it ia a lamination type paneling.
Paint away,
