Magen is looking for ideas: "So glad to have found your site! I have a question... What to do to utilize this odd but cool shelf thingie in my hallway? It goes the length of the apartment and has two beams separating it from different areas. It is 15 inches wide. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
We like the idea of wallpapering the entire back wall of the recessed area with a great looking patterned paper to make it a memorable feature wall while accenting the unusual architectural detail. Then, assuming it is near the main entry to your home, we'd hang hooks for bags, leashes, coats etc. at one end, retaining an expanse of open space at the other.
AT Brainstorming Session: please share your ideas for Magen in the comments...
