Murphy Desk

I am looking for some suggestions or help towards a project I wish to undertake.

I have a large pax frame, that I want to use for storage, but, ideally I want the door to also be used as a desk. Kinda like the murphy bed idea, in that the bed fold out of the cabinet. But this would be a desk instead, without losing the storage space.

I am guessing the door would need hinges on the bottom of it, rather than the side. I would also need some type of leg that folds along with, to give support to the desk. the size of the door would have to be considered, as that would be determine the height and size of the desk.

Does this make sense?
Am I forgetting anything so far?
I am guessing the hardest part is going to be keeping the desk/door closed when not in use.

Hope I am doing this right as I am new.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
