DIY Shelves for Nurseries & Kid’s Rooms


Shelves are an essential decorating tool. Whether you’re looking for beautiful wall décor for your nursery or additional storage for all your teen’s stuff, a pretty and practical wall shelf is the perfect solution. That said, attractive shelving can be expensive and hard to find. If you want something with some personality (and a reasonable price tag), you’ll need to get creative.

Need a little inspiration?

These DIY shelves are nothing short of genius. Best of all, many of them can be made from things you already have lying around the house! Turn a 5-gallon bucket into a contemporary storage cubby. Have some scrap wood and an old leather belt? Boom! You’ve got a chic, hanging shelf. The possibilities are endless!

Feeling crafty? Find the perfect project for your kiddo’s space with this DIY shelf round up.
