Starting Katie's room

I have been running around gathering items to start Katie's room. So far I have taken the chair rail down and sanded the areas to start painting. Earlier this week I finished the walls and painted the bottom "grass green" and the top and ceiling "sky blue". I started here and there testing out the stencil work I want to do on the bottom wall. Flowers,Ladybugs,Butterflies and dragonflies. I found the perfect fencing at Bombay Kids here in town and bought enough I think to do two walls. It is already painted and put together you just simply put it on the wall. I also bought a plaid pink,hot pink, purple, and yellow duvet cover to match. I have not found the bedskirt I want. I think a plaid bedskirt is just too much plaid. I also found a butterfly and dragonfly hanger to go on Katie's ceiling. I bought 3 latern type items to hang in the corners of her room. 2 are tulips and 1 is a oriental type latern pink, with flowers. I hid the items from Roy for a few days not to get into trouble for buying so much. The motorcycle sold, so he has no problem with what I bought for the moment. Enough of the rambling I will post pictures in a week or so. It will take some time to complete the room the way I want it to look.
