Very neat ideas

No I didn't do much DIY besides painting the room and hanging pics.

I want to do the wall where Olivia's desk is at with the chalkboard paint.


I didn't do any DIY projects.

The only DIY I did was hang up a border on the wall. These are good ideas, I like the easy crib skirt another thing to use an inexpensive sheet is to make curtains out of it.
