We wanted board and batten on the walls and I wanted to remove the ceiling fan and add a pretty light fixture. My plan included adding a mirror over each night table. I loved our night tables and had no desire to get rid of them.
Our first step was to add the board and batten. We are not installing "board" because we didn't want to remove baseboards or door frames. We also didn't want the wood battens hanging out over the baseboards or beyond the door frames, we wanted it all to be flush, so no board for us.
