In Phoenix, we'd have to use cactus... but I guess that'd be worse on tires than the potholes were.

Are you allowed to take it down altogether and just patch/paint the holes? That's my vote.

I'll probably be murdered for saying this, but I like the "before" better. The "after" is too cold for me, although I am interested in exploring plywood flooring/paneling.

Hated this color in the 70s, hated it when it came back in the 90s, hate it again now. Green is my favorite color, but this shade has just never made me feel anything but "yuck".

The final pic has a very "nursing home" vibe, not sure what they were going for there...

I cannot abide the color yellow in decor, particularly as wall paint. I was forced twice in my renting days to live with yellow walls, and hell will freeze over before I do it again. The only place I put up with yellow by choice is in the occasional bunch of fresh flowers - they look sort of awesome in my thistle-walled dining room.

I think you should go with your first instinct; a deep red would be stunning! Gorgeous contrast with the pale green, almost a Parisian look.

To each his own! From a practical standpoint (I think) I can see the appeal, but this just would not work for me aesthetically. Points for creativity though...

I absolutely love the idea (above) of painting it red - bright, fire-engine red, to slap some life into the otherwise neutral room. I don't love the column either, but emphasizing it might make it a feature rather than an eyesore, particularly if you go with a green tone for the walls as you mentioned.

Besides, if you paint it red and hate it, you could still take any of the suggestions above, and you're only out the cost of a small can of paint. Squaring it off sounds icky and blocky to me, and I have a feeling you'd hate it even more squared.
