Flip down art desk

Submitted by Nphartw on Mon, 01/28/2013 - 14:23

This is our first project. My wife was searching the Internet for a small desk to buy/build after we decided it was time for the little one to have a dedicated art station. She was previously using a small chair in her room. Followed the plans with the exception of making it 18" tall instead of the 16" the plan calls for.
Overall it was very easy. But definitely attach the hinges before finally assembly of the bottom frame. That took about an hour to put 4 screws in with fingers, screw bit, and a wrench.
I built and my wife painted.

Thank you Ana White and everyone for their follow up comments.
