Small spaces: desk ideas

Do you need a desk, but don’t have a lot of room?  Consider a small table to store only the essentials.

Repurpose an Existing Table

This table once displayed our pictures.  I recently moved it into the kitchen to serve as a small desk.  There are two drawers which are perfect for:

  • Stamps and Mailing Supplies
  • Coupons
  • Gift Cards and Gift Certificates
  • Take Out Menus

On the top of the desk, there’s room for:

  • Laptop
  • Houseplant
  • Cube of paper for notes
  • Cell phone

This table works well  in front of the window.  It gives me a great view of the backyard.  It’s also in the main part of the house, so I’m close to where the kids are playing.

Off to the right, I have a small table which holds our incoming mail.  There’s also a storage unit for our receipts, and a telephone.  Everything is in one central location, but doesn’t take up too much space.

Consider purchasing or repurposing a small table to serve as a desk.  It may very well get the job done for you. 🙂
