  1. Such a beautiful room – love that you've picked a non-pink scheme ;)That desk is lovely – the rug is a great addition, and the mobile is lovely.Gorgeous!

  2. What a transformation! Well done – I love that it's not pink, although pink is my favourite colour I find it gets overused when it comes to girls

  3. Thanks, Abby and Kelly. I am not a big fan of pink, although I think is fine in small doses. I also wanted a space that could grow with her. Very few things in the room will have to go as she gets older. That will save me work and money.

  4. Gorgeous Lana Mango! I love those little lamps too and the colors you used:)

  5. I've been following since seeing your blog on Ikea Hacker. I love what you have done with the room, it looks so beautiful and unique. I bet your daughter loves it! Nice work 😀

  6. I have a Nikon D90, and I used 3 different lenses for these pictures.

  7. I just discovered your blog from You are truly inspiring! By the way, how did you line the bookcase with fabric? Also, where can you get the fabric?

  8. beautiful makeover! very tastefully done. by the way, i love the bed, the simplicity of them. where did you purchase them?

  9. Found your blog from YoungHouseLove and absolutely love the transformation! I would also love to know how you painted those closet doors. I have a similar situation at my house with ghastly oak doors. If you could please share a step by step for painting those, that would totally help a novice like me! Thanks in advance!

  10. Thanks, all new friends visiting. I appreciate your nice words.

    Now, on to the questions:Lining the back of the bookcase was easy, as I did it while I was assembling it. I used Mod Podge to line the reverse side of the cardboard in the back, if I ever tire of the fabric the right side is there in all its fake woodiness.The beds were from eBay. They come with all the stuff to use them as a bunk bed too, I just chose to use them side by side. I bought them because since both ends of the beds are identical, I can use them as daybeds propped against a wall if it ever comes to that. They were pretty inexpensive, just stalk eBay for a similar deal on similar beds (they come flat-packed). Tara: I am currently working on a post along those lines as I get many requests by email. Keep tuned in for it.

  11. Love the room and color scheme. Is the folded turquoise piece at the end of the bed a blanket or quilt? Can you tell me where it's from?

  12. Gorgeous room! I would love to know what paint color that beautiful blue on the walls is!

  13. It's a local brand, and the name of the color is Sky Blue. You can match it with the background of my blog, they are almost exactly the same color (in a properly calibrated monitor at least.) 🙂
