Hadn't looked at it like that, hawkb :) It's a lot larger than a trailer hitch.

These are custom but you may find similar ledges at crate and barrel or west elm.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Everyday Shrines for a Happier Home
Think about the scale of your objects and whether a grid of boxes, built-ins or floating shelves would be the best way to show off the objects you’re passionate about. The display is key to giving the objects the respect they’re due, whether they’re train cars on long, narrow shelves …
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Collective Wisdom: Display Ideas for Collections of All Kinds
Here’s an excellent approach when your collection is made up of lots of pieces: customized shelving. Once again (do you see a theme here?), the furnishings below the shelves mimic the colors in the collection for a very cohesive feel.
6. Install floating shelves. Floating shelves like these are inexpensive and easy to install. Use symmetry to align the shelves with one another as well as with the other elements of the room, then add your display items as haphazardly as you like.More ways with floating shelves

The storage across from the sink is a vintage piece. “It’s a beautiful freestanding piece she found,” says Noyes. “It’s the kind of thing that would have been in an old grocery store, and it’s perfect for holding foodstuffs and plates in this kitchen.”
