After the birth of her second child, Boise, Idaho–based Jennifer Hagler of  A Merry Mishap  moved her office into her bedroom: "I wanted a small area to keep things or to work and get away from the rest of the family for a few quiet moments," she says. In a cleverly executed move (thanks to her husband), her formerly full-size Ikea desk now functions as a corner bedside table/workspace. Here's how to replicate the look. Above: "My husband cut our old Ikea desktop down and attached it to the wall with a supporting bracket," Jennifer says.  Above: The corner functions as a spot for Jennifer to create a small mood board and keep papers and other sundries organized.  Above: Designed by Jan Piechac and Henry Wielgus for Menu, the My Spot Notice Board consists of three anchors, a weight, and a hanging cord. It's available in gold or black for $150 from Huset Shop. Above: Stackable  Swedese Spin Stools , available in white, black, and five colors, are $320 each from Huset. Above: Bits and Bobs glass desktop containers from Hay are designed to hold paper clips and pushpins; prices start at $15 for the Mini Orange Bits and Bobs Container from A+R Store in Los Angeles. Above: Ikea Lerberg Trestles are $10 each.
