Has anyone modified their Micro Minnie with the sofa so that they could use the space under the couch for additional storage?
I modified ours using a continuous hinge and four 1 1/2" corner brackets. I screwed the corner brackets to the plywood base under the sofa and mounted the continuous hinge to the kick panel and the brackets. I mainly did it for two purposes, to retrieve cat toys that end up behind the kick panel and because the screws that held the kick panel in place kept pulling out of the OSB backing plate of the kick panel. Here are a couple pictures. As Blubugger stated, there isn't much additional storage behind the kick panel.
