We're leaving the white bookshelf and the futon (at least for awhile), and getting rid of everything else.
We're planning on putting up a chair rail about 3 feet up, and painting the bottom part of the wall a chocolate brown, leaving the top part white, and doing multicolored polkadots and stripes. I'm not sure how we're going to do it yet though...one wall with stripes? No stripes at all?
I'll put up more pictures as we get further along! Anyone have any great ideas?
