Brooklyn's room...in progress

For those of you who know me, I have always liked home decorating. However, since moving to this house over two years ago, I haven't done much. Its a combination of less time, energy and money! However I do have great plans for the future whenever I can manage all those commodities at the same time.

This past January I finally got around to painting Brooklyn's room. Wow! What a difference compared to pasty, dull and dirty white builder's paint! I love this color, and the inspiration came from the print displayed on her dresser. I also tried using a"candlelight" paint in stripes over the base coat to make it look like wallpaper. When the light hits it right it looks really cool!
I bought that chandelier at an antique store over three years ago, and finally things are looking a little more cohesive. I plan to make a padded fabric headboard and a faux canopy from the ceiling with matching drapes. Like I said, just need the time, money and energy...

Anyway, here is the progress so far!
