This decorative wall shelf is perfect for a kid's room or home office.  It's as easy as A,B,C!  Use this decorative shelf to store toys or books.  You could even personalize the shelf by writing your child's name rather than ABC.  This project can easily be made in bright pink and purple colors for little girls, too!
