Pop-up Mod - Added Shelving

Picture of Pop-up Mod - Added Shelving
We have lots of room for sleeping in our pop-up with a king, queen and two twin beds...unfortunately this comes at the cost of a lack in storage. So my dad and I thought that we could solve that problem a bit by adding some shelving above the sink area and a storage area right by the entry door.

We purchased all materials that we did not have on hand from lowes. Materials: 6' linen wire shelving (the linen clost shelving is deeper than the traditional shelving, but its up to you.) -- $13 Chain - we greatly overestimated how much chain we would need. We used about 6' with of chain at $.43 a linear foot. S hooks - we found that you can actually bend the chain we used to serve this purpose but you may née them depending on your chain. $1.50 for 6 (you will need 16) Rivnuts and screws - we used rivnuts to secure the shelling to the ceiling. There are other ways to attach it if you don't have access to the rivnuts tool. -- $0 Suggested tools. Pliers - to bend the chain apart Rivnuts tool - to place the rivnuts in the ceiling. Screwdriver - to screw in screws :) Cut off wheel - to cut apart the shelf Sharpie - to mark where to drill Drill and bits - we used a centering bit and a sheet metal bit to make sure we did not drill in too far.

Step 2: Cut Shelving

Using the cut out tool we cut the 6' shelling piece in half to form two 3' sections. This was much cheaper (at least for us) than buying two three foot sections. As you can see in the second picture 3' is about the size of the sink counter. We also added tips to the end to prevent and cut heads.
