The room is still a bit messy with sanding dust, and I haven't rolled the carpet back out or moved any stuff back in. What I have done is texture the ceiling, painted all of the trim and that big built-in cabinet. I replaced the old knobs with new ceramic knobs. I have also installed the first rail for the custom bracket shelves. From the pictures you can't really tell how much better the white parts look with fresh paint. Before it was dull, dirty white - now it's fresh, clean white. I also replaced the electric receptacles and plates.
