    • 60's Wood Paneled Office Design Help, I'm the forth generation to live in this house so everything in this 1911 craftman style house is outdated. My grandpa put up this paneling in the 50's or 60's. Taking it down or painting it is currently out of the question. We just installed new carpet so I want to give this room a nice facelift. It's going from a Game Room for kids to a Home Office for a college student. The only furniture for sure going in is a 50" flat screen we were given. Any ideas how to brighten it up? I'm hoping to fit a futon, desk, and a tall book shelf in here. (it's roughly a 12' x 12' room with a small closet), Home Offices Design
