• List of all tools and supplies needed to complete the project 

Photos, preferably step-by-step

Instructions (Step 1….Step 2…..etc.)

To add extra storage behind our sofa-sleeper, I pulled it away from the wall about 6 inches and built a shelf from a couple of 1 x 6 x 72″ . I added a 45° angle cut from the 1 x 6 and four shelf supports to hold it to the wall then stained it to almost match the wood in our interior. Now we have a great window sill, and an out-of-sight storage area for a folding table, stool, chair, sleeping for and other flat items. Cost was maybe $15 and about an hour time. And my bride can set various decorations along the window.

●Counter extension. My friend took a big cutting board I had that was the right size and put it on a hinge at the edge of my sink. Pop it up when you need it. It’s awesome when you need more room and your sinks and stove are in use.
●Shoe racks cut up and tacked to the wall. I’ve got them in a few places: inside a closet door, at the entrance for things you need in a hurry, and on the wall the bed is up against -in lieu of a night stand.
●magnetic flag for hitching up. Pop it on the tongue of the trailer and it’s super easy to hook up to the trailer. I bought mine at Canadian Tire.

To keep the shelves looking new and from scratches I bought baskets from Wal Mart. I think 15 high and 12 wide. I put all my food cans and other food groups in there. I also use them on all the shelves except under the sink. The baskets also hold all my utensils as well. I want the cabinets to look new and stay new and be able to find things. They are wicket plastic material. Go check it out. Thats my mod.
