HAVE YOUR DINING ROOM DO DOUBLE DUTY -- AS A DISAPPEARING HOME OFFICE!

Finding room for a home office can sometimes be a problem. But -- now you see it, now you don't -- you can convert one of the least-used, but most visible parts of most homes -the dining room -- into a home office that isn't noticeable until you need it! Interior designer Kristan Cunningham () showed how, on The Early Show on Wednesday, July 8, 2009:

Ideas from the show:

The multifunction printer/fax/copier/phone id covered with a bottomless basket that is simply lifted off when you need it. it rests on a serving table which can be used to store linens and also office supplies.

The hutch has part of the glass front covered with frosted contact paper. Leaving the top part clear to display dishes and serving ware.

Behind the glass door are files, books and all the desk top supplies. The desk supplies are on a tray and blotter and simply lifted out an put on the dining table. Don't forget to put a desk blotter under it to protect the wood.

The dining lights are already there and make excellent lighting.

The bottom of the hutch holds more office supplies on one side and serving dishes on the other.

Art work is hung on a rail allowing it to slide to one side revealing cork and black boards underneath

The furniture on the show was from Raymour Flannigan, but existing furniture or more expensive/cheaper furniture can be used. The office supplies and containers are pretty standard and any brands can be substituted. The wall track for the art is the only specific item -- about $70 with the attachments.
