Here is the headboard -- we will be adding finials to the top of the posts but have to special order them and I haven't quite decided what I want yet. Budget for this project? $20 for the MDF, primer we already had, and paint that was about $10/quart. Of course the finials are 9 bucks apiece, but hey -- still pretty cheap overall.
Wall color is a pale aqua. The dark brown blanket will be covered by our taupe duvet cover once it and the duvet come back from the drycleaner. (We had a little accident during one of Spencer's impromptu naps.)
The turquoise pillowcases and square pillow are from Nate Berkus' line at Linens 'n' Things. I refuse to pay those prices for more than just an accent piece or two, but they DO look nice, don't they?
Inspiration for this room came from a print I bought on Catalina Island -- haven't got it framed yet but I will get there.
Working on curtains today -- and I will most likely post a few more pix of the house in the next few days. I *think* we are going to my grandma's for Thanksgiving and she will want to see pictures of what we've done around here.
