    It would brighten the whole room if you painted the ceiling as well
  • Completely a mater of personal taste. I think it can look great either way. Just depends on how much of the wood charm you wish to keep - or not.

    Love where your dog is sitting too!

    • I really love what you currently have, yet understand how you might want a change. Here are my off the top of my head thoughts: painting over the knotty pine walls is going to be a bit of work. If you add in the ceiling, you will need scaffolding. Drywall may be the way to go. Are the planks easily removable?

    If this is a lake house or a home in the woods, I would not paint either, but if you want to paint, then I would suggest painting the wall and the ceiling.

    Hi there, you could always start with the walls and see how much you love and then maybe do the ceiling after!

    Make sure you use a good primer with stain block before painting.
