DIY Hanging Pallet Desk

This desk is one that you hang on the wall.  Made from pallets, it wasn't that complicated to create.  A few simple cuts, some nails of different lengths, two hinges, two lengths of chain and a can of paint. 
 
Drilling pilot holes keeps the wood from cracking.
 
Putting together the fold down desk part.
 
Adding the paint before you put the desk together is the best way to go about it.
 
We chose white paint, but you could do whatever color you'd like.

Attaching the hinged desk was a bit difficult, but with some bricks or wood blocks to keep it at the right level, it wasn't too bad.  Make sure you place the chain screws in just the right position so as to make the desk level.
  
The finished product.  We haven't had a chance to hang it on the wall, but one day it will be used!

Be creative!  Think outside the box, and use materials you may already have, or are free (or very inexpensive) to obtain.  Some places will very readily give away pallets.  Give us a link in a comment of your DIY pallet project!
