This Room was pretty... but not 100% ME!! So we moved on to this...
We ended up changing the paint from blue to green and refinished the black bed to a pretty yellow color ( Saffron ) from Restoration Hardware

My Little Girls Room.
Didn't Brett my hubby do an AMAZING job with this trim work!
Here is a picture durning the construction stage.
The back part of the trim is untextured sheetrock wall and the rest of the trim work is MDF boards and decorative trim.
