    It is lovely!! I love the bird cage feature above the bed! I also love what you did with the headboard. I see those a lot at Goodwill and next time I will have to snag one up and paint it blue for my son!!

    So cute! I love the frames birdcage, may have to pick one of those up. My question is what did you do with her old bed? I love it. I've been looking everywhere for something like that with no luck. Oh and I also have been meaning to tell you thanks for introducing me to ebates! Best thing ever! Love it!

    what a fun room…the chandelier is such a special touch and I really like the "curtain rod" you made – so clever. The color of the bed frame is fabulous – and her expression when she got to see it is priceless!!

    I found this on Pinterest and I just had to stop in and say how much i love this! We're planning to move to a new house soon and I've been collecting ideas for my kids' rooms for a while. This one stood out to me because you incorporated so many of the colors and elements that I had in mind. My daughter has a bed very similar to this one, but it was her choice to paint in bright pink. I think it will work, though. I love the pop of the darker bed color against the pale blue wall. I wonder if you would share with me what color paint you used on your walls? Thanks for the great ideas!

    Saw your feature over at Tip Junkie. Love what you did with the room! I'm a big fan of pops of color. I had the opportunity to repaint a wood bed for someone recently and I tried and tried to convince her to go with a fun color, but she wanted to keep things neutral with white. Yeah, it made sense for her situation, but boy was I bummed!

    Love everything in your daughter's room, it's obvious by last pic that she loved it. Good job Mom.
    Where did you get all those awesome bird cages? I love bird cages, can do so much with them anywhere in house. I started out with bird "stuff" just in our room and bathroom but slowly but surely the birds have somehow migrated into living room and mud room even.
    Anyway, you are sure inventive and so glad you incorporated so many cheerful colors. The bed color is to die for. That color is girly but not overdone. What a success. Just found your blog tonight "somehow" but will be back countless times to see what you've been up to.

    Hi Julie,

    This room is so cute. I'm using your color scheme for the inspiration for our new baby on the way's room. It's a girl, and I love the color you picked for the head board. I am trying to do just a few pink accents and I think the headboard is the perfect color. What kind of paint and color is it? Thanks for sharing your project.

      I do apologize for not giving more detail on that–several people have asked. It is just a yard of the polka-dot, sewn to a backing of white sheet fabric to create a mini duvet cover. I then inserted an inexpensive white comforter that I had cut down to size to fit it. I made this because I wasn't able to find a comforter or throw in the colors I was looking for, and it worked. Hope that helps!
