If you look closely Lizbeth you will see my shelf has legs also.
Ahhh, I see it does! Maybe I should paint mine to match the walls.

Mine has wooden legs. The one closest to the closet and the one on the back closest to the middle of the trailer are put on with hinges so they can be folded up if there is a need to remove and store the shelf. There is one more leg in the back curve of the trailer because without it the shelf was tippy. I pegged it so it was removeable.

Tirah, I made a pattern out of cardboard. That made fitting it a bit easier, it's not perfect but it works.

To attach to the closet we used a length of 1"x1" bolted to the closet wall through a matching piece on the inside. We drilled 2 holes down through the shelf and this wood for bolts dropped in. This can be easily removed but keeps it steady. For legs we used some very thin pieces of metal and bent a small foot on the bottom.

That's a good idea to make a cardboard pattern, Lizbeth. I didn't see the legs on Barbara's shelf initially, either. That's totally what I had in mind. I love that you can't see the legs very easily, Barbara, really cool looking.

Now I'm thinking about other places I can put these types of shelves you have all built where there's still plenty of room for feet to go. This might even be a neat way to build some more cabinets, especially over in the bunk bed area where my kids sleep. Would love to store their clothes/toys/diapers neatly in some little shelf-cabinets or in baskets on a shelf.

As usual, I'm blown away by everyone's creativity.
