I started this project awhile ago and finally finished the lower section. It is a 32 x 16 x26 barn wood bookshelf. But I need an idea for a top. Anyone have any ideas? I am drawing a blank.

As I said on facebook, I think weathered metal would be cool. But I also like the idea of brushed aluminum. One would be an antique look, and the other old and modern?

If you want something softer and a little fFancier, a yard of velvet fFabric is cheap.  Something in a green or red, with a couple layers of other cloth as padding.  Stapled in place, and voila!  You have upholstery!

fFailing that, why not just a wood shelf, as you already have?  Is it meant to be a utilitarian piece?
