Nursery Storage/Decor: DIY - Amelias Seaside Shabby Chic Nursery (roomzaar.com). Buy old (or new) slatted shutters, power wash them, paint them with the wall color, and dry brush paint a shade darker over the base color. Add simple white baskets and a few other accessories and tie each item onto the shutters with ribbon.

I agree with the previous comments on having guests glue buttons on something: "I like the look of this with the idea to build it as part of a baby shower. Have a plainer version and a tin of buttons so guests can each glue buttons to the book cover, then write a welcome message to baby inside. Great keepsake for later."
If I had a nursery I would definitely paint some monkeys on the walls, but this would be great for those who didn't have a bunch of time or patience to paint. :)
