The is the heavy piece of wood in my van. It’s a 1 x 6 x 10 so it won’t affect gas mileage.
I used drop ceiling wire to get the strange shape of my van’s ceiling. Ceiling wire is flexible enough to bend with the hands and stiff enough to hold its shape.
I mounted the drivers side of the headliner to the spice rack.
The finished work of the 1 x 2 includes a 3 way switch to control the kitchen light, decorated with my lovely Walmart adhesive carpet tile (works wonders with Velcro).
Now we add a shelf.
Having a switch at the back and front of the van works really well, especially when I wake up in the middle of the night and need to make a snack run. I can turn the light on in the bedroom or tiny office, then turn the light off as I leave the van.
I’m really proud of this kitchen., especially the lighting.
