These cherry blossoms are so pretty, we can practically smell them! Christin shares her daughter's room: After having a boy first, who is SUCH a boy's boy, I wanted to create a pretty space for our little girl. With touches of woodland creatures and nature inspired elements, it feels sweet, girly and a little bit fairy tale like. I included vintage family pieces with brand new touches to give the room a fresh pop.

DIY projects:
• branch with cherry blossoms made of felt, fabric marker and pearl beads
• "V" made of white corduroy and pink cotton, stuffed
• refinished the furniture:
• dressers painted first aqua to match the wall then white washed over, then new hardware
• green table spray painted (on top of a paper stencil I cut and glued on) then sanded to look aged
• 'Cinderella' paper bunting & mini bunting, cut scrapbook paper and sewn onto ribbon, white paper birds cut out and added after hanging
• paper globes from a tutorial by Heather Bailey
• tissue paper pom poms (search martha stewart for an easy tutorial)
• painted picture frames and mirror

Second hand, family collectibles, or vintage finds:
• crib
• all art prints
• V letter block
• yellow bunny
• metal kitty hook, dragonflies and thermometer key
• books
• porcelain figurines
• Holly Hobby pictures

Pretty & New:
• curtains & valance, cherry blossom pillow, crib bumper: Restoration Hardware
• all hardware: Anthropologie
• crib sheet, baby quilt & rug: Target, shabby chic collection
• owl stuffed animal: Pottery Barn Kids
• futon, bookcase, white cherry blossom lamp, pink bins, fox stuffed animals: Ikea
• keepsake box: Burlington Coat Factory
• eyelet lanterns: Martha Stewart collection
• Chandelier from Canadian Tire
