I turned out ok

Growing up my sister said to me "I wonder what your house is going to look like when you are older." She had reason to be concerned considering my idea of decorating our college bedroom was blue icicle lights for Christmas and posters of 98 degrees on my walls. I have always been a little challanged in the arena of decorating. This weekend TJ and I painted and decorated our guest room in anticipation of our company coming in less than two weeks. There's still more to that I could do, but I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
I bought these pillows FOREVER ago and I love them. Since we moved into our house they have been stored away in my closet and I have been trying to figure out how I can use them.
This is the old bedding. (Sorry I didn't take before pictures.)

I should have cleaned up the desk a little before taking this picture but this is an after shot. Prior to these shelves the books were stacked up in our closet.
We added black trim around the ceiling and wall in our room. It was a lot of taping but I really like how it turned out. The flower pictures are courtesy of Tom Kirby.
Here's the bed with my favorite pillows.
This is the best picture I could get of the room. I still need to help on my picture taking skills. If you saw what it looked like before you would understand how much better it looks.

that looks so cute! I love how the bright colors look with the black & white. the black trim around the ceiling looks really nice. I've thought about doing that in our house but that's as far as it's gone. :)
