I have the IKEA black picture ledge in that entry picture above in my entrance as well, the best thing ever and no, you won't hit your shoulder on it, it s so narrow! I use it for keys, mail which had to go etc. Have a black scissor style hook rack under the one side of it for dog leashes etc., perfect....!

Floating anything is so cool and practical! Especially under a big flat-screen TV. I recently Hung a tall shelf turned horizontally to put my outdoor plants in for the winter. Did the job in no time.
