From Swedish design blog AprillAprill, these white bookshelves for a kid's room make lovely eye candy and provide great function. Different colored patterns line the backs of these shelves providing an eclectic mix of shapes and colors. You can take on this project with anything from wallpaper to scrap book paper to shelving liner. Just choose the pattern of your liking, cut the pieces into the size of your shelve backs and off you go! Steal this idea for your home office by using a touch more sophisticated paper.

We love how easy it is to create shelves of different heights and lengths as well as the ability to create your own designs. And, even better, you can change it out anytime you want with not too much effort. Fast and functional!

Simply take a vintage box frame, paint it a color of your liking, add your own little shelves in the form of wood or another comparable material and there you have it. We can envision several of these frame shelves on a wall at a variety of different heights to create a fun mural. Be sure to hang these securely to a wall so your child can't pull them off so easily.
