I got really tired of this, and the fact that a phone would fall on my head if I were sitting in the chair below this cubby. I like things to be neat and clean. I have a hard time keeping up with my family though. And myself sometimes. And living in a trailer can make it hard because there is just no room for piles of stuff. And we are a piles of stuff kind of family. This cubby is supposed to be for a TV, but when we moved into our trailer we put our giant 35" inch TV in instead. And our leather couch and chair. Comfort over floor space!
Here it is after, and I'm now happy about it. Still not "perfect", but I like the way it is and can easily live with this. Tomorrow will be another before and after of a storage area above the kitchen. That one will be a doosey, and require a ladder.
