Flip down desk

I'm in love with everything about this desk.

It takes up hardly any space, is functional (check out the storage inside!),
and it even doubles as a chalkboard.

It's pretty perfect.

Now I just have to figure out where it can go.
Oh and I actually have to make it (minor detail).
Does anyone know if there is a store bought version of something like this?
I think if I put it on my project to-do list it might not be completed until my kids are in high school...maybe college.

My husband added it to his to-do list this weekend. I LOVE it. No clue where it will go in our house but I still LOVE it!

I did a similar project and it was super easy. He got a wine crate for free from the local "Spirits" store and it came wth a top. So I just painted it white on the outside and used chalkboard paint on the inside. Andwe just hung it on the wall (screwed it to the wall using achores of course). But you coul get the same look as the picture by attaching the top of the box using hinges and metal chain to keep it parallel to the ground when it's opened. We got them and use them as little art centers for or boys.
