Trim details

In this teenage girl's room, there was a need for shelves to display all her collectibles. We used crown molding with a simple1x6 or 1x8 top. The top was routed to provide a softened edge and, in a matter of minutes we could make shelves of different sizes and shapes that were appropriate to the items to be stored and the size of the wall. We used the same crown that capped the room, adding backer where necessary. Larger units might have a 2x4 or other substantial framework to support additional weight, If the display is to be plates or other round items, you might rout a 1/4" x 1/4" groove near the back of the shelf to keep them from sliding off.

These seemingly floating shelves are made of base molding installed upside down, crown molding and a simple 1x 8 cut to any shape with a routed edge to add more detail. Note how the shelves fit the items being displayed. There is no limit to their dimensions.
