Who: Kenneth R.
Where: Panorama City, Calif.
In March 2010 we moved into our new "old" house, and we knew we had just six months to transform a plain white room into a nursery for our baby's arrival in August. I had the idea to do wainscoting, but I wanted it to be a 6-foot plate-rail height so that it would work with the proportions of the room. Luckily my wife trusted my design sense and my DIY ability. Of course since we had just purchased our house we didn't have much left to spend on this project, but I was determined.
