fold-down desktop from the ivar unit
bonnie hides a fantastic ivar desk in her wardrobe. the best part is how the legs fold in!
she writes, “i needed a desk to fit into my built-in wardrobe at home but there was nothing on the market that would fit properly yet provide a big enough desk space for work. with a 30cm (approx 12″) deep ivar unit already in place, i thought i’ll just buy another 50cm (approx 20″) shelf, knock up a couple of leg frames with some 42mm x 19mm pine and put them together with a bunch of hinges. it was a simple enough concept and here it is! now i have the perfect concealable workstation.”
