Shelves don't have to be boring! Use shelves not only to stow extra items near your changing pad, but also to display toys and books that you may not want within your baby's reach. Paint wood shelves to match your nursery's décor or go for the minimal look with floating shelves. Add interest—and space—to corners with shelves. You can use one or several starting with a larger one at the bottom and going to a smaller size near the ceiling.
