Waka waka waka!
Welcome PacMan enthusiasts and shelf aficionados! This instructable will show you how to build and install a floating shelf shaped just like one of the ghosts from the game. The shelf shown below is approximately 30x30" overall, with free-floating eyes and body. It sticks out about 5.5", which is just a little bit wider than a DVD case. The eyes also conceal a hidden compartment (see pic #2).
: I built this shelf for my sister for Christmas and she loved it. The design was inspired by a ridiculously overpriced ($600), but totally awesome ghost shelf

. However, they recently took down their listing, so I figured I could make it myshelf
(lol), with a few improvements such as hidden compartments in the eyes. I also made a few minor changes to the shape of the ghost (moved eyes a bit to the left and changed the bottom layout, see pics #3 and #4) to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
