We really wanted to do something different for our little girl's room. We choose purple as the main color instead of the usual pink. My husband did the chair rail himself and the artwork over the crib was done by her aunt. We enjoyed letting the family get involved in decorating her room. The animals on the wall are appliques which we like because they can come off. This allows us to keep the same colors and redecorate as she gets older. The shelves are also a great storage space.
