I copied this idea from ohdeedoh. This was so so cheap and so so easy to do. I plan on using these raingutters for a picture ledge. The hardware used to mount them creates a little shelf and allows for a piece of wood to sit in it. The piece of raingutter cost around $6 I had them cut in in half. The harware was about $6 for a bag and I have 3 left--enough for 1 more. and the end caps were jst over $1 a piece.
Total Cost: About $16
And yes this is my landing upstairs. I have to use every inch of space in this tiny place. ◦
