My new thing is hiding a stack of shelves behind an open door. There are so many rooms in my house that have this little piece of wasted space!
For my son Ethan's shelves, I made the 10-dollar ledges, but only 30 inches long. Also, because I used pocket holes to put them together, I made the "shelf" part from a 1x6, so they would have a little extra depth for showing off his treasures and lego projects.
These changed the entire look of the room. I love how they are out of the way, and are adding design to his room as well.
These were so easy to build!

I didn't need it to be smooth or shiny, so I used a $3 pot of test paint for all five shelves. A great way to save some cash!
