Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the homeowners' baby on the way. The French doors were removed to create a solid wall for a crib or bed placed against. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim. Soft carpeting will be perfect for a child's room and metal crates hang on the wall and serve as storage for stuffed animals. A crystal chandelier was removed from the original dining room and installed here in the nursery.
