Looks great, I did a very similar mod, but used a commercially available locking bracket. Provides a lot of extra counter space.

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments! Shannon, I use #8 stainless steel Philips raised countersunk machine screws and cup washers for most of my attachments, with a locknut on the back. There are 6 screws in 12" of piano hinge, so I didn't use backing. Plenty of shear stregth.

Removing the drawer allowed my hand to reach behind the holes to secure the nuts. No I didn't need to remove the stove or refrigerator.

I try not to use pointed 'wood screws' as it will leave pointy sharp things inside the cubbies to tear stuff! And, when you're fishing around you can catch your hand on those screws...so just machine screws unless it's dead space (like the overhead).

*sigh* Too many switches and things on our 16' Scamp for this to work. BUT... I may figure out some sort of a drop-in-a-bracket gizmo to do this. Hmmmm....

I mounted an aluminum plate to the fiberglass with 3M VHB tape, then attached the brackets to the aluminum with short screws.

Thanks for the info, makes sense... but how did you attach the lower bracket? It looks like it is attached about midway down the fridge... ?

With just a bit of contortion, I got my hand down there thru the drawer opening. And I have large hands! Actually it was quite a bit of contortion!

Must echo Lil's compliment on the upholstery and counter top color.

I looked at your profile to see more interior pictures, but you don't have any.

Did you have the cushions reupholstered? It looks like you have them contoured to fit the interior curves.

I really like what I see so far and would love to hear/see more of your interior. I have a standard scamp 13 with factory upholstery (luray - plaid with flower motif - beige blue and red.). I long to redo the interior and am looking for inspiration and this looks very appealing to me.

Now I wanna see your curtains!!!!

Thanks for sharing!

We had custom cushions made, and yes, the front dinette backs have curved backs to follow the contour. I'll post more pix soon. Thanks!

I found a carpet store who accessed it from their supplier. It helps to have some dimensions in mind...I made my tables from 3/4" ply, so I found a profile that is common - Edge Trim - Covers 3/4" - Edge Trim - like this. It's available through a lot of suppliers, and isn't too expensive; it comes drilled and countersunk for #5 screws. You apply it by anchoring the first few screws, then slowly, gently form it around the radiused edges with a rubber mallet as you keep adding screws and work your way around the table. Trick - if you drill the holes toward the bottom of the countersunk hole, the screw will pull the "L" flange tight to the table surface. They come in 10' or 12' sticks, so i accessed it locally rather than trying to order online and have it shipped.

Here's pix of my galley - I added a countertop because the PO messed up the fiberglass top. The tables match.

Also just fitted out the closet for storage - used 1/2" PVC pipe to make supports - hold a tub on top for pots & pans.

Bathroom junk holder screwed to inside of door for small item storage.
