Wall Kitchen Table

Double-Duty Dining This itty-bitty kitchen had no place to dine, but in less than one day and on a budget of $200, we created a simple fold-down table made out of basic materials. Handyman and carpenter Thad Mills was recruited to help out with the project. Get Started Determine the size of the table you want to create. Anything around 22″ to 24″ deep is a good dimension. This table seats two, so it’s 23″ deep and 47″ wide. Build the Wall Frame Use a circular saw to cut out the back of the table frame. Cut 1″ x 4″ pine boards to frame your plywood. For this frame, we cut two board lengths at 48″ long and two board lengths at 22 1/2″ long. Glue It Right Apply wood glue to the edges of the plywood. Secure the Sides Attach the 48″ boards first to the top and bottom, then the 22 1/2″ sides to the perimeter using 1 5/8″ screws. Build the Tabletop The table is constructed from a piece of plywood cut to 23″ x 47″. From a 2″ x 2″ x 8″ pine board, cut two boards at 21 1/2″ for the sides, and two boards at 47″. Apply wood glue to the edges of the plywood and secure the boards with 1 5/8″ screws. Prep for Paint Sand all edges of the frame and tabletop until smooth and fill in screw holes with wood putty. Prime and Paint Lightly sand wood putty to make an even surface. Prime all parts of the table, but try to avoid getting paint on the piano hinge. When primer is dry, paint your table the desired color. For the best protection against spills, use semigloss or full-gloss paint. Cut the Hinge Cut piano hinge with a hacksaw to the length of your tabletop; it’s is easier than it sounds. Attach With Screws Place the tabletop in the frame as if the tabletop is folded down in a finished state and screw the piano hinge to the back of the frame. Mount on the Wall Using level, measure and mark where you want the table to be installed. Find the studs inside the perimeter of the frame outline. Have a friend hold the assembled folding table on the wall over the marks and attach the frame to the wall where your studs line up with the frame on the top and bottom using 3″ screws. Add the Chain Let the table fold down until it’s at a 90-degree angle from the wall and frame; attach the 25″ chains to each side, starting with the top end of the chain, and attaching the bottom side where it has comfortable tension on the chain, supporting the weight of the table. Lock It Up Fold the table back up in the frame and install the gate lock on the top left- or right-hand corner to secure the tabletop to the frame when not in use.

Hmm… not getting why you’d want your back to watch your little one play? lol Also, why do something so permanent with the desks? What if you want to move furniture around at some point – adding those to the wall kinda lock you into that corner. Plus, I’d sure hate to patch all the holes in your house when the next occupant moves in and doesn’t appreciate all your diy stuff… lol I’m thinking you didn’t want a desk sticking out so far if you turn them INTO the room. I like the nice heavy wood desks & chairs – just not too crazy about bolting them to the wall. (and yes, I realize it’s “spack-able”). That’s a creative use for a table though!

The two roommates in this 1920s apartment didn’t stand a chance of fitting a standard-sized table in their tiny kitchen. In less than one day, and on a budget of $200, we created a simple fold-down dining table. I recruited a handy carpenter and friend, Thad Mills, to help out.

3. Then, we cut our 2″x4″ board to the width of the table, and using a level, we screwed the 2″x4″ with 2 1/2″ wood screws to the wall into studs.

The design is very simple and perfect for a small family, as the leaves are mounted in different heights. Perfect for a small space and tiny houses. The small holes in the table lets air circulate, and is a great idea, if you keep tea and other food stored inside the table.

13. Delta Dining Table ($5,721): The fusion of natural wood and modern glass makes this table utterly eye-catching. It’s so well-designed, you can’t even see the extension mechanism.

Since four chairs came with the kitchen table, I painted two of those too.  I’ll probably end up selling the other two in a yard sale.  $50 per desk with chairs isn’t too shabby, huh?

When it comes to furnishing your home, we all know the kitchen is where it’s at. If it’s where the food and booze are kept, it’s basically the center of our universe. So its main furnishing, the dining table, is pretty important too. And as you know, we’re big on helping you live in even the tiniest home, so in the spirit of “good things come in small packages,” here are 18 gorgeous dining tables that all expand. They’ll fit just single you, then stretch out to accommodate any guests visiting. We think that’s worth celebrating with a dinner party for all your friends.

Before While charming, this Los Angeles bedroom had no pizzazz. A wood accent wall was just the solution to add a rustic, modern touch in this Spanish-style home.

Thanks, Mary! There’s really nowhere else I’d want to move these desks in this room, so I’m completely okay with them being stuck to this wall. I debated this room’s layout for months before deciding this was the winner.

1. We just used the tape measure to find the very center of the table top, traced a straight line with the pencil down the middle, and cut carefully with the circular saw.  Done.

9. Tempered Glass Extendable Dining ($599): Invest in this table, and even in the distant future when we’re living with Jetsons-era technology, it’ll still blend in.

Transfer your measurements to a sheet of 3/4″ plywood and use a 4′ level or straight edge to connect marks to make straight cutting lines. For this table, we cut one piece at 48″ x 24″ for the back, and one piece at 47″ x 23″ for the tabletop.
