I have been a longtime and loyal customer of Minted – from their beautiful artistic cards and announcements to their colorful prints. When I saw that they were expanding to include their newest, and long awaited, art shelves I just had to get my hands on one for Greyson’s nursery. I personally love the concept of wall shelving because, as many of you know, my husband and I are still in a one bedroom apartment with a new baby. It’s important that we continue to live minimally while in this home and wall shelving helps us create purposeful and multi-use spaces.
The Little Artist Shelf is a piece that Greyson can grow into as it not only serves as a shelf for frames to display, it is also designed to showcase your child’s art with an assortment of art clips that hang below. For our 4” shelf we have 14 clips in which to hang his future artwork. At the moment I have my Instagram prints of Philip and I hanging since Greyson loves to look at them while we change his diaper. Once this boy can put crayons to paper you’ll bet to see his artwork up and hanging!
The other great thing about wall shelves is that you can use them for many things: to display art, books, or simply be utilitarian by getting items off a counter space. I love using mine to display our favorite baby books and to keep his most used products within reach such as his baby lotion, diaper cream, and Orajel. The white wash was a perfect color shelf for his nursery since we went with a woodland theme as it has a great earthy-white tone. I am also very happy with the quality of the shelf; it’s made of sturdy premium wood, which makes it super durable. If you’re looking for a rustic piece for your nursery or kids room I couldn’t recommend this shelf enough!
Although the Little Artist Shelf is my personal favorite, this shelf is one of many finishes that Minted has just released. There are five other shelves in The Artful Shelf series that come colors such as premium wood, herringbone, French farmhouse details, and even copper!
Are you just in love with the Little Artist Shelf that includes art clips as much as I am? Which art shelf is your favorite?
