I added knobs that I have been using to hang  necklaces from.
I decided to make a cut out on the side with my jig saw.

This shelf I made out of an old tin ceiling tile. I picked up the ceiling tile at an Antique store while on vacation in West Yellow Stone. Of course I only bought one and wish I would have bought more. I used an old shelf board on the top, I felt the thin pine shelf board wasn't substantial enough so added the trim under it. I used scrap pine for the rest of the shelf. Originally I painted it white then decided to rub it with stain. I think you get much more definition with the stain rub.
