It's basically one giant room, which is great, I love the amount of space down there. But the wood paneling, drop ceiling, and florescent lights were just too outdated for me. We moved our stuff in and basically created two areas: a game area with the Ping Pong table, and a seating area with the TV. These photos are a couple years old, but it basically looked the same because I never put any effort in to this space.

Just priming over the wood paneling made the room seem so much bigger and brighter! Getting everything primed took me 2-3 weekends of work. Then it was time to paint. I went with light gray paint and white for the trim. I'll do a full blog post soon with pics of the space completely painted, but here's a little preview of what the paint looks like:
Have you ever painted paneling before? Any tips or tricks to share?
