If you're a designer, chances are that you sometimes or often find yourself drawing one iteration of a design over the next on layers and layers of paper. It can help to have a light table for this purpose, but there's one more option for those of us in small homes without room for such a uni-tasking piece of furniture:

Try using a glass desk or dining, side, or coffee table (if you like working on the floor). When you need a light table, simply place a lamp under the table's surface. It works really well and simply uses two decor items you'll be happy to use in your home even when you're not working.

The glass desk pictured here is from Crate and Barrel, as featured in Good Questions: Similar Glass Desk for Less?. The lamp is a Sunami Flatlight.
