- You really have to just keep painting coats of paint until it looks solid. If you think, "Oh, that will cover it," and it looks splotchy, then you'll hate it in two days. Do yourself a favor and make the extra two hour time commitment so you love the room for years to come.
- Paneling may require caulking gaps in the crown molding above. I'm not worried about it right now, because we can fix it when I paint the ceiling. Yup, the ceiling has to be painted.
- It is very hard to fill in holes in paneling and make them look like they never existed. I did try though....see below.
I still would like this room to be the family room with the TV. Remember that we are changing the floor plan of the house, little by little, from this.
- Test out whether I can stand the TV being attached on the wall that is shared with the master bedroom, or not. I go to bed earlier than my husband which means I hope I cannot hear the TV when I'm in bed, or else we'll have to figure out another plan.
- Paint the ceiling white.
Hang the new light fixture I got (see below).
- Hang a new modern floating shelf as a place to catch keys and small tidbits when we walk in the door. Perhaps also a mail station on the wall would help with the in/out mail.
- Figure out whether or not I can dye the curtain in this room. I priced fabric (21 yards worth) in the style I love and it was $375 just for fabric, and then I would be left to sew it myself. Whew, I really don't like sewing straight lines that much. I also priced buying pinched pleated drapes and sewing them together to make the length we need, but that was closer to $600. Too much money. I'm still hoping dying the fabric would work.
