A DIY nautical knot shelf, retro storage tins, a fingerprint keepsake idea, beautiful safari cookies for a little girl’s baby shower, and an art wall idea for a small space!

Pottery Barn Kids has an adorable Swing Shelf (orig. $69, on sale for $50), perfect for a girl or a boy’s room. But why buy it, when you can make it yourself? Rebecca of Fresh Chick Design Studio shared this nautical knot shelf DIY — and it only cost her $12 to make! Check out all the details on Project Nursery.

These retro London Storage Tins (approx. $20) are fun and funky. The retro illustrations and bright colors make them perfect little knick knacks for nursery shelves. And as baby grows, these storage tins will be the perfect hiding place for your little ones special treasures.

Hearts made from fingerprints! Kristy of Kristy Makes shared this lovely keepsake idea, fingerprint hearts, that would be a wonderfully unique piece of art for any wall in your home.

We’re always in awe of the beautiful and creative baked goods we find online. These safari onesies and rattles for a girl baby shower are simply divine (also check out these 10 Baby Shower Cookies to drool for we featured a few months back).

We love a good chalkboard project, don’t you? This small wall in between two boys’ rooms was transformed into an art wall with a little bit of chalkboard paint and several inexpensive frames to display the boys’ creations. Full details at A Soft Place to Land.
