Adding “workable” solutions

We often work as we travel so adding devices like printers and cables to the desk area was necessary.  We opted for doors below the 32″ TV instead of the fireplace which provided a place for HP printer, scanner, copier to safely ride. Removing the back panel inside the area that Keystone put in to hide a couple wires opened the entire area.  Building another stained baltic birch shelf with sliding unit and Rockler wood cabinet slides

Filling the void!

One of the challenges of being a new Keystone owner is adapting all the empty storage spaces into usable ones. We quickly approached the pantry in the kitchen as our first task. How to transform this area with deep trapazoidal shaped spaces into something efficient was the challenge. So we began by measuring all 4 sides inside. Then we built shelves using 3/8 in. baltic birch (easy to stain).  In the tall center area we went one step beyond and built a sliding drawer using Rockler wood cabinet glides under it to provide stable,  accessible storage for canned goods. For each shelf support we attached 1/2×3/4 in. wood strips through the thin side walls using small decorative bronze screws from Home Depot. The Bronze color matches all the other hardware in our unit so is not noticable.  On the inside of the right hand doors we built small 6 in. wide boxes with slatted fronts to hold all the boxes of ziplock bags, foil, and plastic wrap that RVers use. Couldn’t do the left side as Keystone’s design for decorative trim on the slide prevents the doors from fully opening with the kitchen slide open. Another aw shucks moment!

In the top cabinet we placed a double wire rack from Home Depot on left side wall with plastic clips that allows for storage containers to ride above the rest of items for easy access.
