@leilagphillips I wonder if you should paint the ceiling with a white paint in a satin or eggshell finish? Make it less porous and more washable?
Our goats kick up a lot of dust in the backyard, so I have taken some precautions with the rooms that have windows onto the back
I've got some Nursery room inspo here. If it's boys, we'll do Blue/greens instead of blush pinks, but overall, it'll be the same for either gender.
