Practical art has been a goal of mine for awhile. So when I recently moved into a small apartment and wanted to save space everywhere I could I decided to create a drop leaf breakfast table out of a large piece of wood I painted an image of Marvin the Martian on a few years back. Looking at the sequence of pictures will show you how I basically added wood pieces and hinges to hold art piece in place and attach supporting shelf brackets that close underneath when not in use.

Love Marvin! wish I was an artist, can do pretty much anything else but drawing has always escaped me :D
