I added crown molding to the bottom of my ten dollar ledges to add a little fancier look.
Love that touch! Maybe this is what mine need before I install them!

Very classy looking! Just what I was looking for in my home office. Thanks!
I have two that are ready to hang, but need to paint the wall first. Might add to them before I do.......thanks for sharing!
so cute!! I want to make these!
Such a great touch with the moulding.
Thanks for sharing.
This looks great! What a wonderful idea! I have a question, Other than the moulding on the bottom, did you follow the plans exactly (Like used the same dimensional boards Ana said to use)? Just asking because yours came out looking so much better than mine (which very well could be the paint job and moulding fooling my eyes into thinking the other boards look smaller, lol)
Great job and thank you for sharing!
I did use the same size boards that Anna said they just might be a different length.
I love it! Great idea!
I love the finished look! So classy!
Is there an added piece on the bottom of the moulding?
wow that's amazing. I so need those. LOL everything you post is very stylish and functional. You know I work at a high school. I could see getting the art class (which makes projects like these) to do these for my classroom :)
Where are the instructions posted?
This is great as I am a photographer and love to switch up my photos often. Saves the walls from holes and is just a great idea! I also did not see all the instructions but will have my husband duplicate.
This is great. I made the ledge and plan on adding the crown molding. How exactly did you hang them?
I have high ceilings. I have been trying to figure out what to put at some of the windows to dress them up a bit. I think I may add them to the den area. Photos would be out of the reach of all the grandchildren, but photographs could been seen without cluttering tables.
Has anyone tried using a 1x3 for the back instead of a 1x4? Can anyone think of any reason it would not work?
Also thinking of making it deeper since the crown molding will provide extra support. I want to add more depth so that I can install a power strip under shelf, behind molding so that I can turn it into a charging station. Any thoughts on this? Would love to hear other opinions on this before I start building and then realize the problems that may exist in my plans.
Your website is very chatty. It will be useful for all of us. You have done a work. I will come here again to inspect new updates. Thanks for posting. news release distribution services
It looks like your ledge is narrower than the one in the plans. Did you use a 1 x 4 for the base?
This looks great! What a wonderful idea! Great job and thank you for sharing!
