Plywood walls..
 
1 Attachment(s)

In the house we are buying, a majourity of the walls are covered in a type of plywood or particle board. I am not sure what type it is, but it has a clear coat on it already (to keep the moisture off of it, I suppose). I want to paint the walls so they do not look so unfinished, but want it to look smooth. I was wondering if there are any primers or sealers that might work, and make it so it does NOT look like plywood underneath. The house is about 4,000sf with some rooms being 2 stories, so we probably would not want to have to spend the time sanding everything.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

New Guy,
Paint with Killz and then use the paint of your choice. Here are some pictures of our ceiling which was plywood with polyurethane coat (clear coat). We did this in another house too. In the first house we used oil based Killz because we worried about the bleeding through factor. We used the latext Killz on the project in the pictures. It been up for 8 years without any problems.
