I can't decide if I want to paint my knotty pine basement or leave it how it is. I really like the results this homeowner had with her paneled wall.

Quirky finds—a coffee table forged from a centuries-old tree trunk and a carved-wood faux deer head—bring personality and warmth to this Ohio lake house's living room.

Our home has knotty pine walls and I felt overwhelmed and claustrophobic like I needed to turn on lights. Those dark walls made the rooms feel like caves. I knew that a few (gallons) of paint and primer would take them from dreary to delightful. It took several coats of primer and several coats of good quality paint brushed on by hand to fully cover but when they were done-the rooms felt bigger, brighter, warmer and welcoming.
