040909globe-01.jpgWhen we're you're looking to add more storage or display space to a room, it's a good idea to think vertically. Jennifer goes vertical and hangs a shelf over the window for displaying her vintage globes--genius DIY. Her process after the jump!

She mentioned that the previous homeowners left an old piece of wood--so she decided to put it to good use. Sanding away imperfections, she chose to paint the reclaimed wood and attach antique brackets on each side.

After a lengthy search, Jennifer found the vintage map she was looking for (and always knew it would end up as a window covering). We love the "worldly" theme and think this is a great DIY idea for adding display space in a room.
