As it turns out, there are so many different whites to choose from, but in so many different shades, that you really have to be careful which one you choose for your specific situation. For us, our crib is gray and so I wanted to pick a white that wouldn't clash with that. I also didn't want the room to feel too cold and gray, so I took that into consideration as well.

DIY Geometric Photo Display

I've been thinking a long time about how I wanted to decorate the walls of our hallway.  And by a long time, I mean like since we remodeled over a year ago.
