And wah-lah. The first thing I did was patch and paint the walls. I found this olive green color at Lowes, it's by Valspar, a paint and primer in one. One coat did the trick!
I made the headboard out of 1x4s and 1x6s. The bedding is from Target. It's sold online only. I couldn't pass this up. The whole set, which included 2 pillow cases, comforter and sheet set for $59.99, free shipping too.
