Start with a really ugly wall color (yellow-green) and drapes that look regurgitated (left). Add a decent wall color (sunset peach) and southwestern style linens & curtains (right) and you have some improvement.
Of course, boys will be boys and this room wasn't masculine enough for our Ronnie. Daryl decided to cover the "girlie-colored walls" with tongue-in-groove cedar (below).
The doors didn't look right with the new walls, so Daryl decided to cover the doors too (left). Since the entire room was wood, I threatened Daryl with bodily harm if he tried to put wood furniture in the room.
I found this iron bed (right) at Wiggins Furniture at the outlet mall in Conroe. It is VERY heavy and Ronnie approved the style. We have the drapery, duvet and pillow fabrics (black velvet with gold accents) for this room. The drapery and valance are complete (see below), but we are still working on the duvet and pillows.
