    We absolutely love Calvin’s nursery :) We made a peg board very similar to yours above our changing table…. where did you find those wire baskets that the diapers are in on the peg board? We have looked high and low!

    Thank you :)

    Hi – what did you use to hang the pegboard as well as the art work on the pegboard? I’m having a hard time finding hooks online that don’t require I spent a minimum to get a few.
