How have you made shelving?

Really don't have any ideas on how to put shelving in where our bedroom slide is.

It would be great to have an area to rest phone/keys and maybe a book but I hate to drill holes into the paneling.

How have you put in shelving?

well, my DW has to have a place to put her glasses, cell phone, wine glass, etc. so i sliced up the formica and chipboard sink cover/cutting board that came with the rv. i put the pieces together with hinges so it will fold flat if i ever take it off the wall. and yes, i used two screws into the wall, since this mod will be permanent:



and this is what replaced the original sink cover:

For light weight items likes cell phones glasses etc... 3M moulding double sided tape will work fine. 3M
The down side will come if you decide to remove it, so use sparingly, small piece on each vertical support and a couple small pieces on the horizontal shelf.

If there is a chance you will remove do not use on paper covered walls.

Make your shelf as a hanging shelf and use those plastic hooks with the tab that lets you remove it without leaving any sticky residue. Find them at home improvement stores a lot.
They are called "command" hooks made by 3M company.

Command strips can do almost anything! We love those.

I don't have a slide but use a clear plastic file holder for the same thing. I have one near my bed for book and glasses, one near the door for leashes and pick up bags and a third for maps and guidebook. I did screw this one in but they came with adhesive strips as well.

Lots of great Ideas, but I think this one takes the cake. Along with some 3M, We have a ton of hooks all around made of the stuff, holding up really well too.

the negative about a hanging shelf is movement, it will eventually rub the wallpaper off, unless its removed each time you drive.

Be aware that the panel won't hold much. (Screw wise) you need to be sure to drill into studs if you choose to screw it in. You can, however, use a combination of things. such as VELCRO (3-M makes some nice "Command" velcro strips, they stick well and come off clean) and legs to hold up the sheles, Think bookcase instead of shelf and you have what I'm thinking of.

Would that work for hanging a clock for the wife?
