I wanted to create a storage compartment and removable/reversible table top for the LATT set, so that my daughter can use the table top as drawing surfaces using chalk and dry erase markers. I built a storage compartment using the existing table frame. Then I re-purposed a magnetic dry erase board and cut that into a new table top and painted the other side with chalkboard paint. The storage compartment is built with 1/4″ plywood attached with glue and finishing nails. The divider/support was attached using pocket holes.
