When you live in a small flat with two people you have to be savvy with space.I had so many boxes full of tools and an ever growing collection of sewing things that the only way to clear the hallway was to use the wall space. The photos below show the little alcove where a small fold down desk would fit perfectly. I got the wood down the road from the Bristol wood recycling Project. I have recently added a little shelf for my overlocker below the desk. Now its just hard to keep it from cluttering up!
