Just don't do this with the power wiring. Sounds like alot but I think the cutting, drilling, patching and painting would be a pain in the arse.
Yup this sounds like a good idea, but as someone pointed out, this is the middle floor of a 2 level townhouse.
I am planning on painting that room/wall anyway (it is just white now), so that isn't a big deal.
I DO have unfinished storage underneath that wall, so I am looking into utilizing that area to run the cables rather than go through studs.
A lot of great suggestions in this thread! Thanks. I'll be sure to update with status.
