Imagine my surprise when my daughter (holder of the largest bedroom in the house - fully decked out with toys, mind you) informed me that she preferred her brother's room. After my initial surprise, I thought to ask her why.
She wanted her room to be darker, like her brother's.
Aaaaah, darker I can do! Off we went to shop in my fabric supply. I didn't have enough of any one (interesting) fabric to make a whole curtain panel, so we went 'patchwork-y'. She loves them!
We did pick up some curtain lining at JoAnn's - who knew that stuff was only $6/yard! Add your coupon and I got my two yards for only $6. Nice!
Now her room is officially as dark as her brother's. Even if it is a bit much...
