    I think I'm glad that you scrapped your other plan. It couldn't be any more fun than this. Love the black and white of course. It gives the room a bit of sophistication – perfect for a tween but the polka dots keep it light and youthful. Loving it.

    WoW! It looks great and I'm sure she loves it. we just did a tween makeover too and it's a similar look to yours. I especially love that red table and the mirror turned jewelry hanger.

    It looks great, Julie! Just enough to give her that little bit of "grown up" look. Love the bedding; what a great find! I think the black and white makes for a nice addition to her room.

    This whole post made me smile. What teen girl wouldn't absolutely love a room like that??? I especially loved the bedspread and the head board, it adds such a perfect pop of color.

    How did you keep her out of her room?? That's like the PERFECT surprise!

    The ginormous fabric flower is fantastic! I love fabric flowers, but the biggest one I've ever made, and I felt it was huge, was about 5 inches across. Hello! Why do I limit myself so? Thanks for breaking me out of my fabric flower box. đŸ˜€

    I never get tired of looking at this room. I've seen it several times, but had to pop back over after seeing it on CSI. LOVE the aqua/red combo.

    And the keep calm & ask mom will go in my girl's room when she's older!!
