Best would be to use Marine ply

Its stronger, lighter, thinner and you can leave it wood grain, or you can flat it down, and paint it high gloss.

That's what I would do.

Me too, when I was a student I built up the inside of my Kombi as a camper with Marine ply crates. Took a gas flame to it and varnished lasted forever. Friend made his from standard ply, first visit to the coast and it started to de laminate and fall apart.

Some times cheap can work out to be expensive.
