Using different pieces of furniture in different ways is essential in military life. We move often and a piece of furniture used one way in one house, may not work the same way in a different house.
In our current apartment, I’m using our microwave stand as a printer stand in my “office” (which is also my dining room).
I’ve added little baskets in the drawer (from Dollarama) to keep the pens, pencils etc. organized in the drawer.
In the cupboard part, I purchased a cardboard literature holder from Staples to store all the types of printer paper and printer labels. Envelopes and packing tape are all on the top shelf for easy access.
