You just need to rough it up a little so the paint will stick. I would get a medium grade and a softer grade of sandpaper from the hardware store. Use the medium grade first, then go over it with the softer/finer grade, then take a soft cloth; not paper towels, and wipe the dust off of it before you paint it. You don’t need to see the particle board.

Yea, you’re really just trying to take off the shine, definitely shouldn’t need to sand down to the wood. Good luck, have fun!

I have an orbital sander, so I’d just use a very fine-grit paper with that.
