Kids need a desk to work, but challenging floor plans or small rooms can sometimes make this difficult. This room, however, uses the small space between two bookcases to create a spot for homework or just model rocket assembly. All you need is a few cleats which means it's even do-able for renters.

With the help of a cleat attached to the wall under the desk and on the sides of the bookcase, the tabletop is supported and ready for use. For renters, since it will only involve a few screws, it just requires a quick patch when you move.

It keeps the vibe of the space feeling less cluttered while still giving little ones a place to learn. Check out full directions for this project over at Martha Stewart.
