If you lack a dedicated spot for paying bills and stashing loose stuff, a good desk is a must. This desktop, made of plywood topped with acrylic sheeting, stands on turned legs. To make the free-floating hutch, use a small cabinet laid on its side and repurpose the door to create shelves. A cubby tucked under the desktop holds a basket for yet more storage. No guarantees, but it should make tackling paperwork more inviting.
