If we told you that living your best van life is going to require you to be as organized -if not more- than you are at home, would you still be up for it? If you answered yes, then you are ready for the adventure! Small space? Little problem!
1. DIY Wardrobe
Here is a shelf that’s designed especially for small spaces! Unless you’re the exception to the rule, it’s pretty rare that you need to hang up and iron your clothes before going outdoors. For this reason, when camping, you need shelves and not hooks in the closet. After that, you are free to determine if you’ll iron your clothes or not…!
2. DIY Shelving for Camping
Every camper needs this idea! The idea is to install a shelf above the stove, so that you can store ingredients and spices for cooking. This very simple project can be done by anyone (or almost). For a similar look, we suggest you use our copper tubes.
3. DIY High Shelves for Campers
As you may know, kitchen counters tend to accumulate clutter! If you’re the type of person who searches for your glasses while they’re on your head, you should build this shelf. In height, it can hold a lot of objects, without necessarily taking up all the space. The tubes and connectors to make this shelf can be found on the tinktube online store.
4. Wall shelf for camping
Books and decorative items also have their place in a camper! This example can be used as inspiration to build a custom wall shelf with our copper tubes.
5. DIY kitchen shelf
This example proves that it is possible, with tubes and connectors, to build a custom-made shelving unit for the needs of your camper.
6. DIY wine shelf
If you are a wine lover, you will definitely want to save your good bottles for the holidays. This shelf can be hung on the wall using metal shoes. You can replicate this project using our copper tubes instead, for a similar look.
7. DIY cabinet for camping
If you’re short on space to hang clothes, dish towels or towels, this custom cabinet can be created with tubes and fittings. Just insert a rope into the tube and hang it up using a single or double hook.
8. DIY Trolley on Wheels
This trolley can be tailored to your needs with the flexibility of tinktube tubes and connectors. By adding removable casters under the cart, it is possible to move it as you wish in the van.
9. Custom Shelf for the Van
Whether it’s adding storage in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom, this shelving unit can be built after the van conversion… when you realize you’re already running out of space!
10. DIY corner cabinet
This corner cabinet maximizes space in the van. By attaching the metal tube to the top and bottom, you make sure you have sturdy shelves! It is also possible to adapt this project, by creating a rotating cabinet which can pivot, thanks to the central tube.
