A few years ago I visited an old colonial farm house that was on display. I noticed that they had these shelves over the window frames and door frame. I thought they looked neat since they fit so close to the frame and utilized the space above the door and window frames. I decided to try a couple. The first two pictures is a shelf that I built that fits over a door frame. The third picture is a similar shelf over a double window. This shelf is much longer than the one on the door frame. They make great storage areas for antiques and collectables without taking up room in the middle of a wall. You could also run a rod between the side supports for curtains if you wanted. They are made from pine and stained with an oil antique stain.
