Yes, there is a balancing act going on where the raised panels were, but if theres a will, theres a way !
The glass knob is visible from top and bottom of shelf
All we added were iron shelf brackets
Had to save that copper plate
We made sure the copper hinge showed on this shelf.

Since I'm married to a builder/remodeler, I get the left overs from many projects. And being the wise man he is, my guy knew to save this door with the copper plate and glass knob. We cut the door in thirds. The latch side is a shelf over the window in my dining area, and the hinged side was cut down to fit over the window in the adjoining room. We get the same comment every time someone new comes over.. ... "is that a DOOR?" !!
