Paint Fumes

I painted my room on Saturday. (Will post some pictures of my room soon.) How long should I wait before bringing Kiki back up in here? I might not keep her cage up here permanently again yet because I still have lots of moving stuff to do (she has been chilling the dining room) but I'd like to take her up here for a few hours at a time to play with her. I can't smell the paint fumes anymore, but I don't trust that. How long should I give it?
By the way, the windows have been opened and a fan has been on since I started painting and still is two days later. I just got my brother to come in here, he says he can still smell is a little bit but not really.

It should be okay but I'd give it a few days yet just to be on the safe side. Paint smell lingers for ages
