My little sister will be coming to stay with us. Long story, but in a nutshell, she has nowhere to go.. it's either us or foster care. I'm in the process of finding a lawyer to attain custody. She is quite the troublemaker, but I attribute a lot of that to not having any upbringing..

Back to the room issue. I need to get this room painted, and bedding purchased before she gets here. It's a small room, off of my master bedroom (originally built as an extra bedroom for DH's grandmothers daughter) We had to buy a space heater and window unit air conditoner as it does not have central heat and air. Unfortunately, there is a deep freezer in there, in a small niche by the door. I plan on having DH make a shelf to go above it, for a TV (which will be bought later on, provided her attitude and grades are good) I need an idea for covering up the deepfreeze where I can still get inside it on rare occasions. Maybe make a fabric covering? The carpeting is red. Luckily she likes this. She wanted the walls black, so we compromised and agreed to paint the walls white, and the trim black. I'm thinking either a black bedspread, or a zebra print with some red accent pillows.

Anyone know of any good storage solutions? The main fault of this room is that it is small (about 11 1/2 feet by 7 feet) and has one small closet.

I could also use links to any websites pertaining to teen decor or storage solutions..

You could alway make or buy one of those small curtains (like the kind that go around bathroom sinks) to go around the freezer. And how about drawers or roll out storage bins underneath the bed for storage. Put a small cabinet in the closet for other stuff.
