This was a fun little project for my daughter, a drop down art desk with chalkboard on the cabinet face. The design idea came from Ana White ( with a few design modifications (Ana’s original and updated design didn’t work for my fasteners and the trim).

Looks very nice and I like the chalk board on the front when its closed. That will get a lot of use. Cheers

That’s very similar to what I have designed for a message / mail center for our kitchen. Nice job.

I was JUST looking at that Ana White post yesterday! Great job. I think I’m going to build something very similar for my daughters, though I may try to find a metal whiteboard surface instead of blackboard. Nice work.
