If you are on the fence about painting wood, the before and after images in this article from The Decorologist might make you change your mind. At the very least, this read is good for a laugh.
Just maybe, this will be the year that you take a fresh coat of paint to that wood-like material in your basement or dated 1970s wood furniture.
