    I live in an old apartment and the bedroom has vinyl faced, fiberglass lined ceiling tiles (not the healthiest choice!) and fake paneling. I can't wait to tear it all down along with the lead-based old paint on ceiling and walls that's lurking behind all that stuff, and get back to being more safely refinished with low VOC paint. That's the room in which we spend the most time living and breathing!
