This white branch shelf would look fantastic in a nursery.

  1. I love the Mario bookshelf and the nightstand! All of the other ideas are very creative, too, but the Mario speaks to the kid in me :)

  2. love many of these great looks so cute come see me at

  3. Great collection. I think the rainbow is my favorite

  4. They're pretty, but most don't have nearly enough shelf space for the space they take up. The one with shelves going over the windows is good, though (thinking...). They're shelves for design lovers, not book lovers.

  5. So FABULOUS! I'm so glad to have found your blog...thanks for stopping by earlier! XO, Aimee
