Mission Impossible Update

Just a few clarifications for all you daring participants in this week's Mission Impossible. The $1000 includes furniture, bedding, rugs, lighting -- anything you'd need to outfit a teen's room. The room can be for a boy or a girl, and that boy or girl can be real or fictitious.

You can use any online sources, including CL and Ebay, as long as you include pricing and shipping/delivery, if necessary.

I may include my daughter's "real" room along with the room I'd like for her to have.

Have fun creating your virtual room!

Edited to add: A mattress set, two sleep pillows and one set of plain, white sheets are included with your room -- outside the $1000. Included in the $1000: fabric, bedding, window treatments, lighting, furniture, rugs, and accessories. You have an additional $200 to spend on paint, primer, additional bed pillows, drapery hardware, sewing notions, such as trim and pillow inserts (fabric is included in the initial $1000), lamp shade, candles, wood, tools, etc. All of those things can be sourced locally. Will that make things a little easier? I have to say, this is a little harder than I thought it would be, and I'm a girl who decorates on a budget!

Don't forget sources like Overstock, Spiegel, Wal Mart, Sam's, World Market, Penney's, Home Decorators, Lowe's, Home Depot, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Urban Outfitters, and Pier 1.

Oooh, I have a plan now for your mission imposible. Hope I can get it done by Monday! It'll be what I wish I would do in Daniel's room...
