My family is in australia right now, so I'm wanting to use this time to re-paint and decorate my younger brother's room like a castle. Does anyone have any tips or ideas?

I think I could point you in the direction off a REALLY good website for that sort of thing...  I think it's called 'indecline'.  He he he!

Nice to see you on here, Kristie!

I do personal swappies!  Just PM me!

I'm also looking for a date to the winter dance...

It would be cool to paint the walls in a gray stone look, with a few arched windows through which you can see green hills, blue skies, knights on horseback, dragons, etc.  Break up the walls with banners (if he's into Harry Potter, can paint the house banners), maybe even painted on wood crests for a 3-D effect.  You can paint little dragons or knights on the lightswitch cover.  Maybe paint the dresser drawers in a regal color (like scarlet), with little drawer pulls in gold or in the shape of dragons (maybe even gold).

It would be cool if you could make a draw bridge out of real wood and either completly attatch it to the wall. Or attatch half of it to the wall and the top half could be folded down into a table.

Behr makes this really cool purply/silver/grey color. We used it to make the inside of a "batcave" for my nephew. And then we took some watered down black flat paint and did the shading for the "bricks".
