I know Myron if you look at the kitchen shelf because of the curve of wall , I had to make a metal bracket attached to window to keep it up . You can steal from me anytime .Pat

Here you go, Pat. Corner shelves upgraded to 3ea. The shortened right side vertical piece becomes support for the new, painted shelf, and simultaneously gets to look a little less dumb-bellishly planned.

Nice work Myron ! I need to make something for other end too. That should solve where to put things for whoever gets that side for your trailer . Turquoise is my favorite color too. We have the same graphics on trailer . I use to have a 1963 f-100 Ford truck that had "CaribbeanTurquoise " was the color outside and inside . My kids were embarrassed to be seen in it . But I loved it . Pat

You need to turn your iPad upside down since the picture is right side up.

Dizzy is as dizzy does. In that spirit and also because this thread has become a monster of postings dizzy and otherwise, it is time to summarize my most useful mods.

I spend a lot of my time resting. The mods for there are therefore my favorites.

I liked Jonís addition to his refrigerator door so much I had to go do the same thing to mine. Emailed my image file to the same folks, PosterBrain, Jon used.

They did a great job, my 20x30Ē poster arrived in just a few days. It then became apparent I should have added lamination to my order, to best protect it from wear from my door strap, splashes, food-fights, etc.

What to do? Staples does lamination. I got it done there for under 5 bucks but... it is only 3 mil thick. The stiffest they laminated, 10 mil, was to legal size. I got my poster laminated there anyway. It was clear the poster was not stiff enough to stand up in the door. Should I glue the poster to some really thin board?

My solution was buy a cover sheet of Plexiglas, even though at 1/16th of an inch it was really much too thick for the fridge door track. I made it work, by filing and using a Dremel sander. If youíre thinking about it, I do not advise going this route.

Thickness is key. The black fridge trim pops off with a gentle screwdriver but if your insert is too thick will make you pay, fight you tooth and nail.
