I say paint it if you want to, and don't worry about what other people say. I painted the pine walls in one of my bedrooms a light blue and they look great. I'm so happy with it and don't regret it for one minute. If your walls are anything like mine were, you'll want to clean them with a commercial degreaser before you paint...I used TCE and it worked well. Also, oil-based primer might work well for you to cover up the pine paneling...I had to do 2-3 coats of water based primer to keep things from showing through with my walls. A couple weeks ago I accidentally bought oil-based primer (for another molding project) and it covered stains in one coat. I was amazed, and I would have saved myself a lot of time before if I'd known to use oil based primer instead of latex primer.

See this blog post...they did a faux bois flooring over plywood. You could probably email her and ask her how comfortable it is walk on/how it held up to wear and tear etc.

I like the crane mobile! But maybe you could make the cranes out of some brighter colors. I think that that would be cute
