I took some standard, cheap terracotta pots from the home and garden store and gave them a bit of character by aging and painting them before planting with some geraniums and setting on my front porch steps. You can see how at this link ...http://www.itallstartedwithpaint.com/2012/06/seeing-spots-and-polka-dots.html
We installed easy board and batten into my children's room recently. Its an easy and inexpensive way to add dimension and character to any room. Check out the tutorial at my blog http://lakecottagedreams.blogspot.com

@Sandi M. I am so sorry I just noticed that you asked about the wall color. I cannot remember
the name or the brand off the top of my head. I know the brand is called like Cottage Colors or something and I got it from my local hardware store. I will try and find out for you the next time I stop there. Thanks so much for your comments.
