I'd never thought of a shelf as a decoration, but after seeing this project, I see that the possibilities are endless. If I was a bit more advanced at crafting, I would love to make this!

Love this! Shadow boxes are so versatile, and this one looks awesome.

Wow! Possibilities! Possibilities! I can see these mixed in a gallery art wall with family pics and the individual gets to change their own display area. They would also look cute hanging lengthwise with something tall in them like a set of taper candles. I have to admit I don't use power tools very often at all but this seemed laid out so well I'm very tempted to give it a go!

I think I could have my husband make an entire wall of these to show off all kinds of little trinkets that I have no idea where to put. I could use them to make an accent wall in the den or the living room. My kids would probably like a few on their wall to place awards and trophies. They could also use it to put their beta fish. Nice project!
