When we bought our RV, it was brand new and had almost everything we really needed and wanted. Our first few weeks living in the RV brought some amazing mornings sitting outside drinking our coffee, enjoying the sunrise. One morning in particular I remember it was raining, and I went to sit down in my living room, only to discover I didn’t have a place to set my coffee cup down.
Wait. What? How could this amazing new home of mine lack something so silly!
After a little research and some chatting among ourselves, we found the perfect solution! Cheap, easy, 5-minute fix to our problem, gave us a beautiful little table!
Have you ever thought that the perfect solution might just be a nice small cutting board? But how to make it into a side table took just a little thought and a trip to the local hardware store.
How To Do It
We’ll show you how to make this little table and have it fit right into your existing cup holders!
First, find the perfect wooden cutting board of your choice. Click here for the one we have!
Here are some great choices as well!
Second, you’ll need to take your existing cupholders into the hardware store and purchase two Reducing Couplings. Ours were 2.5 inches, but find the right size for your cupholders.
Next, put the cupholder with couplings into their holder, set your cutting board in a place where you want it, and trace around the couplings to mark your cutting board
Then drill into the cutting board the same size as your bolts (see our below video for help).
You’ll need 2 large washers to hold it in place. Make sure you buy this all together for the perfect fit when you’re at the hardware store.
This was the best solution for us, and we hope we help you find your solution. We can’t wait to hear where your ideas lead you!
