In the days before I was allocated a room for modelling I came up with the following idea for work space, we found a second hand writing bureau, the type with a sloping drop down door the inside of which provided the work surface, 3 drawers below held tools and materials, the space inside the top, exposed when the door was dropped, had small cubby holes and small drawers and a shelf which were handy for keeping paints, glues, solder etc.

This is somewhat more posh than the one I used, but should give you an idea of the type of thing. When you finish for the evening or whenever, close the lid/door and it's an innocent bit of furniture (my old one is still in the garage drawers still good for storing junk --- just in case ya know!

Mike, I have also being using a writing bureau for many years.  It was an idea I got from a friend.  Although I now have a 'railway shed' in the garden, I still use the bureau for most of my modelling, soldering and painting excepted.  As you say, at the end of a modelling session, you can push everything inside and close the flap.  Good idea for the space starved modeller with a fussy missus!
