As nursery trends change, the traditional pinks and blues are slowly being pushed out in favor of current, updated looks. Parents are experimenting more and more with bolder hues, playful patterns, or simply less of it all. It's easy to see why the minimal nursery look is gaining in popularity.

If you're looking to decorate a minimal nursery or want to give a gift to a no-fuss parent-to-be, you can craft this sweet planetary mobile quickly and easily.

The bathroom. It is sometimes the last to get a face-lift when renovations come around. And sometimes, it never gets a face-lift at all. But I'm telling you now, "BE PROUD OF YOUR BATHROOM!". This bathroom was boring with outdated tile, tan walls, and blah wood finishes. And now? If I were the owner, this might be my favorite room in the house.
