What is Your Workspace Like?

I follow a blog called Paper n Stitch that has a feature called "Workspace Wednesday" where she shows off pictures of different work spaces she finds.  Most of the time, I'm jealous of those pictures.  I live in a 1200 sq. ft. house that's over 100 years old, has no storage, and is not roomy at all.  My workspace for blogging and all computer related stuff is a cluttered desk in the corner of our little living room.  When I want to work on my tatting or other creations, I walk about 4 feet from the computer desk to the couch and use a TV tray to hold my supplies.  To use the Cricut, I use the kitchen table.



Lately I've been thinking a lot about my furniture needs. With a space as small as mine, a drop leaf table is a great choice.  It takes up less space than a regular table, but you can expand it to full size when you really need it.  A lot of people have been talking about CSN Stores lately and I found some great choices in their DiningRoomsDirect.com store.
Choice #1 is the most romantic little dining set for two (perfect now that our kids are grown).

Choice #2 is a round table that drops on both sides to leave only a narrow section and takes up very little space.  My only problem with this one is that I'm not crazy about round tables.

Choice #3 is probably the most practical one for me, especially if our kids are there for dinner or we have guests.  It has four chairs and when you fold up the table, you can store the chairs inside.  Personally, I would stow the chairs inside almost all of the time, even when I have the table leaves up for crafting.

What is your workspace like?  If you work in a tiny environment like mine, how are you managing everything?  Take a look at "Workspace Wednesday" on Paper n Stitch for some great ideas and then visit CSN Stores to see what's available.  I want to hear what works for you and what your dream workspace would be.
