Little Yellow Bicycle's 'Makin The Grade' locker paper is perfect for my imaginary school walls.
decorate the insides.
I added a few small details to make playing school fun.
I will be on the lookout for things to make more movie sets for Barbie. She needs a kitchen, bedroom, library, theatre, and who knows what else! I think I like making movie sets in miniature more than sewing those skinny clothes.

The painting part was really fun, it was just a tad frustrating knowing what color and technique I wanted and not finding it in a paint can with my name on it and a full color brochure with foolproof instructions written in detail waiting for me.
And the paint people giving me contradicting info did not simplify the process.
And then there was the little detail that the new furniture arrived in a different finish than I had envisioned. (It only took about a week for my brain to overcome that glitch)
And when you give a mouse a cookie you have to buy a new bedspread. (tee-hee) And six fun pillows to complete the new fashion statement.
Last item needed are curtains. My wallet and hubby need a reprieve, so that will come later.
For next time I have learned a lesson- When deciding on what color to paint a room go to every paint store you know of and pick up one of EVERY one of those paint chip cards. It will save immensely on time and gas.
