What should I do about plywood next to drywall?
 
We pulled down the 1970's paneling, and most of the walls are in good shape, just some patching, but above and below the bar is plywood, which is even with the drywall wall next to it and about an inch thick, we dont really want to pull all the plywood and drywall it, we need to figure out what to do with the plywood to match it up to the drywall all around it? Can We mud it? Do we prime it and skimcoat it? Whatever we do we are going to texture coat the whole room. Suggestions?? Please....

the plywood won't be 1" thick. You could remove the top layer and replace it with drywall or you could mud it. If the plywood is painted, you'll need to sand the part of the plywood that will be taped so it sticks. You could also use a tapeable tearaway moulding in the joint between the existing drywall and the plywood, and then caulk the seam after it's been painted

Tape & mud the seam(joint), finish joint just like drywall, sand it prime plywood and joint, paint both and forget it.
