New makeovers and a Bowl rack

Hi prim girls, In a GW for $ 3.29, I founded this prim shelf, it was cute but painted in antique white and looks simple. After a few days of thinking where I used it, I decide the following...
Change this piece a little bit, and turn it not only nice and prim, but functional too. This is my shelf now....
So, I make a cabinet to cover the thermostat controls in my hallway. I always hated them and finally they are out of my sight. Yes, they are behind it and the piece looks much better now.

Also, I want to share the makeover of a wooden shelf that I posted last week. It was a nice piece but Lisa from Prims from Above was right, it needs a prim makeover. Here is the piece before...
And now,

Two nights ago, my husband makes this piece for me. Love your pictures of the bowl racks and I 've been wanted to make one for a long time, but in the house that I was living; we do not have a spot for one. Finally, I have one in my new house, a large wall in my dinning room and I put it on. I like the way that my bowls are now displayed but think that the wall needs more. Please, share your awesome decor ideas with me. Also, the dinning room needs urgently a paint job. Any suggestion?, it will be much appreciated.

Bye, bye and see you soon.... Evelyn
