How to Mount a Folding Wall Table How to Mount a Folding Wall Table

Mounting a folding wall table is an easy project and will give you extra surface area for your home. Folding wall tables are good for folding laundry and as an extra seating area for dining or for crafts. You will need a few simple tools that you most likely have around the house already.

Tools and Materials:
  • Drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Self anchoring toggle bolts
  • Yardstick or ruler
  • Pencil
  • 16 or 18 inch folding shelf brackets
  • Wood screws
Step One: Preparation

Measure how long the table top is so you can decide how far apart on the wall to place the brackets. The brackets should be about 6 inches in from each edge of the table top. Mark this area on the back of your table top, then measure the distance between the two sets of markings. This is how far apart to place your brackets on the wall. Mark the areas on the wall so you'll know the placement and use your level to make sure they are level. Drill the holes for the toggle bolts, then install the brackets on the wall.

Step Two: Securing the Top

When they are firmly in place, mount the table top to the folding part of the bracket. Secure tightly with your wood screws. The table top should fold up and down freely.
