Re: Help with tired interior

Bubblehead.. that old Pearson 'arborite' finish might take a melamine paint quite nicely and allow you to create more of a Herreschoff' look (white bulkheads with wood trim) that would brighten things up considerably. You'd avoid the effort of covering everything over - which can lead to other issues with the required precise fit, exposed edges, modifying trim pieces, etc.. another option, anyway, maybe, depending on your tastes...
