Bathroom Platform for Lil Snoozy

I bought a couple 8' lengths of PVC Lumber at Lowes.
I cut the 1 X 4 length to build a 17" X 17" frame.
I drilled these for 1 1/2" wood screws.

Then I cut the wider length into 18" lengths.
These I applied to the frame with 3M double sided tape.

Now, no more dangling of feet or standing on tippy-toes.







I also added a $3+ (at Walmart) toothbrush holder I found at Dollar General for fifty cents. And a TP holder from Walmart that I cut the bend off with a hacksaw, ground to shape and drilled for a 1/2" screw.



I also found this bamboo silverware holder at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I bought it for a different purpose but it wouldn't work for what I intended. It fits perfectly in this corner of the Lil Snoozy.

I also found these Rubbermaid products at Walmart.
One on the Living Room side is for holding the A/C; TV remotes, etc.



The other one on the bedroom side holds my .410/.45LC Bond Snake Slayer Derringer rather well.
And there seems to be plenty of room for my Keltec 9mm as well.

For those with an Escape or for that matter Casita or Scamp, these are available @ Amazon, but need to be cut to fit. Made from Bamboo, a renewable wood source.

That's a really good clean look.

That's what I was originally looking for.
Wasn't sure I could cut it down and not ruin it in appearance.
And I also wanted it to be raised level to the entry door.

Bed, Bath & Beyond has a teak version for 40 bucks.

Those are called "Duck Boards" You can buy the 5/8" x 1.5" x 8' stock at Home depot, cut it up, put together with short deck screws and liberally coat with Thompsons Deck Sealer. I had to make them for several motorhomes that had combo loo/showers to keep from standing in the soapy drain water

Can't even imagine why they would call it a shower mat.
Here's about 40,000 hits on Duckboards as well as some pics:

DID YOU KNOW?
The word "duckboard" was created during the early 20th century to describe the boards or slats of wood laid down to provide safe footing for the soldiers of World War I across wet or muddy ground in trenches or camps. The original duckboards didn't always work as intended though. According to one soldier, duckboards came by their name because someone walking on wet duckboards was liable to slide off them much like water slides off a duck's back. Today's duckboards appear in all kinds of places -- from marshes to the floors of saunas. The word "duck" itself has been part of the English language since the days of Old English, when it had the form "dūce."

So now when you have to use the commode, you can say you're headed to the Board Room.
