How To: Turn Any Bookshelf Into a Fold-Out Desk

I work from home, so I'm extremely grateful to have a dedicated office and craft room. But, I realize that's not always possible when space is at a premium. Luckily, if you have a space to store your books, you have space to create a custom, storable office, in the form of a fold-out desk.   Taryn from Unplggd has all the details. "You can get the...look from any old bookshelf, including that one you've had in storage forever...From there, all you'd need to do is add a set of doors...Once the door is on, you'd need to custom-fit a drop-down desk. It sounds tough, but with some hardware store hinges, lightweight wood and [a] tutorial from HGTV, you'll be on your way to the perfect small-space workspace solution."

Great find. This could work inside a utility cabinet in a kitchen too.
