Thanks, walt.

I set up my lappie table with a pulley system so I can raise it up out of the way... for example, when I needed room for the sewing machine to sew my cabin curtains. Which, btw, I love. Besides providing added privacy & shade, the curtains really spruce up the place. As for my hanging table, I can also just slide the table out of the way when I'm not doing puter stuff.

The bulkhead is tacky... I know. lol.

I used shelving contact paper that I picked up from the dollar store and colored out the seams with a magic marker. The bolts were painted over, so I used fingernail polish remover to remove the paint, then removed each bolt, and popped it through the contact paper as opposed to trying to cut around them. This way, I could decide if I want to redo the bulkheads with decent wood, to get a feel for how the finished product might look, without spending a lot of money up front.
