You’ve probably noticed I’ve been doing a lot of posts about separating a room. It’s because I’m sharing a room with my toddler to allow for a live-in au pair and another renter in my 3-bedroom cottage. It sounds like a lot of people in a small space – and it is but it works. But I’d like to make it work longer and a bit better and I need a spot to do some work that’s behind a door. So, I’m trying to figure out if there’s any way of putting a desk (or even a wall-mounted fold-down surface) in my room. In my searching, I’ve come across some interesting shared spaces – two here from Ikea.
