a little modification to the TV shelf
I am wanting to modify the TV shelf in my trailer. It is above the fridge, and is about 20x24 inches. We do not watch tv, exept for the occasional movie, and as we will be pulling our trailer with our van we want to keep loaded weight to a minimum. So we have decided to scratch the tv idea and use this space another way.
One idea I had was to put a couple of baskets up there for bread and fruit etc. But I need a way to keep it from sliding off in transport. Our trailer has little decorative rails here and there (the kind you some times see on top of kitchen cupboards) about 2 inches high, dowels set about 3 inches apart.
I am thinking that mabe we could run this type of rail around the shelf and that would keep the baskets from falling off in transport.
Has anyone else ever done this? If so, do you know where I could by this railing (I am guessing custom kitchen places would have it, but I was hoping for cheaper if possible). Also does anyone use their t.v shelf for anything besides a t.v. or found a product to keep things in place? I am open to other possibilities that might work.
