piece of a broomstick.
drawer made of canvas, hardboard, hotglue, some screws and two magnetic catches.

    Looks gorgeous! Would be something for our 1,5 year old, too, as we have just bought a little table and chairs as well and she just started to draw her first pictures! Thanks for sharing this idea, greetings from Germany! :)

    In fact, under the desktop there is a drawer (with a simple magnetic-lock) for finished artwork. You can see it only on the not published pictures I posted. But this was the idea: a hidden drawer – also to have enough space under the table, to sit and work comfortable. Greetings from Basil to all hackers and interested persons.

    Oh, this is gorgeous! The combination of paper and the crayons magazine is a real gem. A good friend of mine has a daughter of 4 years of age and she started drawing excessively recently, I think she would love this. Thank you for the inspiration!

    Hi. I can’t quite understand how you built the lift up drawer, which is genius. Do you have a link for instructions? Thanks.
