Beginning of Girls' Room Makeover

We've lived in our home for five years. It's about time we started looking like we intend to stay.

First on the list of fix-ups is the girls' room.We finally found an idea that appealed to four young ladies ages 4 to 14 no easy task). We hoped to get the painting started, but the Wallies flowers we wanted to use are not available for purchase in the greater Indianapolis area (and I have 128 miles on the car to prove it!). Amazon order being placed tonight...

Here are the "before" pictures. Perhaps a nicely decorated room will inspire them to be a smidge neater???
