Collaborative or multipurpose Space~ Use a dining table as a desk and place it perpendicular to a wall so several people can sit at the table at once. This table bumps up against a wall of built-ins, which add storage. A large bookcase also works wonders for an office setup like this. I can do this!
built in desk with butcher block counters, in the play room for homework/art projects after they evolve from the "kids table" and baskets & bins of toys, etc. paint chalkboard/magnetic wall opposite for notes, calendar, etc.
