I set a budget of $75, and was actually able to come in under that. (I'll price it out below.) The room was inspired by the canopy, which I found at IKEA, and then when I saw the little quilt that matched, I thought it'd be perfect! They actually had a show room at IKEA using this canopy in an adorable shabby-chic girls room (and an amazing chandelier!), so I think it can definitely be taken that direction too.
So back to the goal: a big bang for a little buck. I saw the idea to use scrapbook paper to decorate your wall at Spearmint Baby. I thought this would be a great way to add some color without painting and committing to a color scheme. So I decided to pull 4 colors from the quilt, which at the time I thought were pretty subtle. Now that I have them on the wall they are much LOUDER than I anticipated. :) Though the colors do match the quilt perfectly.

Soo...what's the verdict? Love it? Hate it? Dizzy? Is it too much going on at once? Sometimes I love it and sometimes I'm not so sure of myself. If you were a birth mom, would you want your baby to live here? Sound off below please!
