Crafting a Life: Inspiration: Fabric Manipulation by Ruth Singer:
Murphy desk $160.00 at Overstock. Thinking of a really ambitious version of this. Large enough for at least 3 to dine at. Set into the wall with flatware, etc. holders where the office-y ones are. Best part-- a mural, or something mod podged to the front so you have art when it's up.
Version 2...This is awesome! Great use of space for a small kitchen. Instant counter top! Could be great in the kitchen remodel!
