22. Wainscot Made for Display

Beef up a wainscot cap so that it doubles as a display shelf. Swap your existing cap for 1x3 trim edged with nose-and-cove molding. The resulting ledge is deep enough for propping family photos.

Preprimed MDF 1x3, about $4 for 8 feet, and nose and cove, about $2 per linear foot; at lumberyards
