About This Project

MDF, Crown Molding (either MDF or pine) and upside down chair rail cap (PVC or could be wood)

The decorative 4-foot crown and hooks wall shelf makes a beautiful place to display photos and other decorations and also provides a practice application to hang backpacks, coats, hats and even Christmas stockings. It is fairly simply to build with basic tools such as a table saw and a miter saw.

The project costs about $57 to make with about half of the cost in the hooks. The overall dimensions of the project are 48 inches wide by 12 inches tall. It takes about 2-3 hours to build.

Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
We painted the wall shelf with a high-quality Rust-Oleum 32 oz. Painter's Touch (two coats) and then mounted Everbilt Decorative Coat and Hat Hook from Home Depot. We chose a semi-gloss paint to give it some sheen. Depending on the color, we used the Everbilt Oil-Rubbed Bronze hooks for white shelves and the Everbilt Antique hooks for dark shelves.
Estimated Cost: 
$57

We actually have this shelf in a bright white color in our foyer to hang coats for visitors. We also put our Christmas stockings on it (one hook for each member of the family).
