Hi/ Lo Versions of "To the Moon and Back" Style Board

While I'm the first to admit that you often get what you pay for, the price of one of these Galactic-themed nurseries is half of the other, a good argument for cost cutting where possible. And though I'm in love with the walnut dresser and some of the other pricier decor, you don't need to sacrifice style to stay within budget.

When I created this first inspiration board, there was some not-so-subtle commentary on the cost of "one or two" of the items. While I stand behind everything (other than the Nelson cigar lamp, which I admittedly included because of its resemblance to a little satellite), I concede that the overall price point was on the higher end.

So, to follow up, I've made two versions, keeping some of the lower-priced pieces in each, but swapping in some similar, but more affordable pieces in the Lo version.
