I share a room in an eensy-weansy apartment (yay college!), so I don't have much space to work with. Luckily, I found my AMAZING desk abandoned miraculously in the alley right around the corner. After enlisting a brigade of my neighbors we squeezed it into place (it was like a square peg/round hole kinda situation. But it was all worth it because it is HUGE and wonderful for cutting fabric on and there is lots of room for my general mess.
In speaking of General Mess *salutes*, my entire space at first glance may seem like a mess, but it is all a very organized mess. Everything has a space, even if that space might be hanging from a piece of twine. Also lots of things in jars (I am a jar hoarder).
