This is the perfect solution to a shelf I wanted to build iver my door in my tall entry way. I prewired the area where the shelf wil go for some lighting controlled by a switch that will wash up the wall. I plan on using a translucent plastic or glass shelf and will stain the wood to match existing woodwork. Thanks for the great ideas on here!! Keep it up!

Although I have not yet built one of these I am in the process of doing something very similar . I was building the same thing for curtain rod covers. They work well to cover the very tops of the curtians, It just didn't even enter my mind to cap it off and put what nots on top. It's a great idea folks I like it.

I built 2 of these shelves and my wife and I really like their look. I stained mine with a walnut stain and they really compliment the room.
