Wall Desk and Bookshelves

I built this for my son's bedroom. It was inexpensive, fairly easy and does not involve bulky furniture. It is adjustable so as he gets bigger, the desk top can move up. The project cost was approximately $90 and I did on a Saturday. I put finish on the wood after installing it on a Sunday. Total time about 4 hours. The only power tool needed is a power miter saw. Borrow one if you don't have. You don't need a table saw. Just get it cut down at Home Depot or Lowes. The cut panels are easier to bring home in a small car too. You have to use the double pronged shelf supports. The single prong supports are much too flimsy.
Here is my instructable or "how to" article on how I made it:
