How to paint a wooden bath panel

we have moved to a house with a very 80's bathroom, peach corner bath, floor to ceiling peach tiles, gold taps and mahogany loo seat/ bath panel etc. We cannot afford to rip it all out, so will have to try and make it slightly more up to date on the cheap!!. Would like to try and paint the bath panel white, but wondering about the best way to do it?

Obviously I will need to sand it down, but do I need to prime/ undercoat/ topcoat? What paint would be best (ideally don't want a gloss finish), and shoudl I apply a varnish afterwards?

I have two children so it will inevitably get wet...

Any help/ advice gratefully received
Many thanks
