Check out Part 1 of this DIY Vintage Nursery design to see how we painted the walls and installed a chair rail. In Part 2, we complete the room by bringing in all the furniture, including some thrift store and flea market finds and putting up a DIY cloud mobile and baseball bat clothing rack! We also gave big-sister-to-be a special princess corner in the outdoor patio!
