Being creative and resourceful can really get you a lot of bang for your buck if you are willing to put in the work. Rebecca from Fresh Chick Design created this cute shelf that was inspired by a more expensive version she spotted in a retail store for her son's beach themed room. It's an easy DIY project and can act as a mini storage or display piece for the room. Photo courtesy of ProjectNursery.com

DIY Sofa Shelf. This is easy and so perfect for our house. We have an older home (110 years old) with those big old grates in the wall. In the open concept living/dining area the only wall where we can pu the sofa has the grate. This is a great way to keep the sofa away from the grate and have a place to set drinks!
