Additional shelf?

Between the fridge and the front end bunk, over the window, is an area I think would hold a small shelf for small items. I'm thinking of the wire shelving. I'm not quite sure how to attach it though. Ideas?

I would either screw it, using short screws, or use double sided tape. Using the tape would depend on how much weight you will have on the shelf.

I saw mention on one of the forums here of using 1" anchor screws...I'm not sure double sided tape would work on wire shelves. Would those be what you'd use for screws?

To determine the required length, I removed an OEM screw holding one of the cabinets to the wall and measured it. Then I determined how long of a screw I needed for my application and purchased the corresponding Kreg brand self tapping screw.

Drill a 1/4" hole through the interior "paneling", obtain a plastic Zip-It drywall anchor, cut off the pointy tip where it meets the threads and install as usual.....you'll never pull that out under normal usage. See the mods section where I posted pictures of such method.
