I am loving this flip-down sideboard from Plow & Hearth. It would be perfect for small outdoor living spaces, and, best yet, it's totally DIYable. A couple of lengths of chain, some hinges and a latch is all we'd need for hardware. I'd shoot the moon and go for ipe for durability, but in covered and semi-covered areas, any species would do. I spotted this item on Apartment Farm but couldn't find it on the P&H website, so I can't tell you if it's still available or how much it cost. But who cares?? We're gonna DIY it!
