Good Questions: What do we do with this Wood Paneled Wall?

Hello AT,

My wife and I are buying an apartment and planning renovations. One thing has me pretty stuck though is this crazy wood paneled wall and windows. We'll be removing the horrible brown wall molding and replacing the ceiling fan with one that doesn't hang so low.

But what about the wall o'wood? We just don't have the time to remove it and refinish the wall. So... should we paint it? If so, do we paint it with the same color as the walls (planning on a cream white)? Other ideas? Or do we just learn to love it?

Thanks! David
