|Stock photo: Ikea wall hinge desk.|
So while shopping at Ikea a few weeks ago we noticed this handy wall desk. It mounts to the wall somewhat like a locker and closes up nice and neat. A keyed front keeps under age sisters from prying where they don't belong. It also has some additional handy features like a built it hole for laptop cables and a strap to keep it in place when closed up.

to wall studs.
Once the two braces were on the wall, I just screwed the desk to the boards with the included supplies. I had #3 come sit in a chair and pretend she was typing to make an estimated guess at how high I needed to place the desk (it's a wall mount = no legs).

Daughter have saved up $62 from odd jobs and was happy to save $20 on this desk that she had been wanting for several weeks. She got a desk, I got to use my power tools...the world is right once again.
