Our house has been home to a green monster. I'm guessing the previous owners' let their 11 year old son do the picking....?

This is an actual un-retouched photo of this bedroom the same day that my little brother moved to Japan. I'm pretty sure he literally set off a bomb and then fled to safety on another continent.

I think I need my own wedding-planning room, right?
