Build a shelf! That's it, really. Just build a shelf.

The point of a shelf is to hold or display things, but it can be configured and colored and constructed in a multitude of ways and out of a variety of materials. Show off your most creative shelving storage solutions for the Shelving Contest and you could receive an Amazon Gift Card! 

The Shelving Contest is closed.
