Can I plaster over interior T 111?

The former owner of our house used T111 on a few interior walls. Needless to say, it's not very attractive. Wallpaper was a short term solution, but I'd really like to have painted walls. Would it work to plaster over it? If so, any suggestions?

Welcome to the forums.

I'd tear it down and put up drywall or cover this with drywall - you could get by with pretty thin drywall covering T-111.

Yes, you can plaster over this. It would be a lot of work to put up a moisture resistant underlayment so the siding does not get wet and swell and warp then either woven wire lath or diamond mesh lath then two or three coats of plaster or cement plaster. Easier to do as mitch17 suggests.
