Good Questions: Uses for a Nevada Shelf?

Good Questions: Uses for a Nevada Shelf?

Hi Apartment Therapy — I have long admired this type of architectural feature. Now that I have one, I'm drawing a blank. We call it Nevada because of it's shape but I've always seen it used as a Shoji screen. I could put paper up there but it seems like I should be able to do something better. Our living room is a work in progress but we have some antique Japanese furniture and furnishing and will continue in that direction. The shelves are 3-5/8" wide. Any ideas?

I had no idea what you were talking about until I opened your picture — and then it was immediately apparent what a "Nevada" shelf was! I'm partial to leaving it unadorned and clutter-free — who elsehas ideas?
