We have decided to paint this dark wood paneling in our family/playroom in the house we just bought (built 1960) with original wood paneling. Yes, we have already decided to paint it (it's getting primed as I type) so please don't try to convince me otherwise ;-)
I'm looking for suggestions on color. I was thinking a light yellow/cream color (Olympic's Spice Delight B14-1 or maybe Shiny Silk A15-2 or Valspar Yellow Bliss 3008-4C). I'm planning on keeping the ceiling beams their natural state and also probably leaving all the trim wood (around the windows especially since they are wood colored).
About this room: it is our second family space on the main level and it is adjacent to an ALL white kitchen (shown - I know...that will be another project). And the big windows look out onto our back yard, there is a lot of natural light and recessed lighting in the ceiling.
Also, I am considering white washing the brick fireplace because it has a weird pink hue that just seems wrong with most colors I want in that room.
Thanks for all your suggestions....and please give precise colors/brands of paint if you want to make some suggestions on paint color,
