If you find yourself in need of office space with no hope of an entire room being available any time soon, you might want to try using a closet. That’s right, necessity is the mother of invention, my dear.
You can turn an extra closet into a teeny, tiny office.
Confession- this girl has been slouching in bed with a laptop for far too long writing blog posts. It was high time I got myself a professional place to create all these amazing blog posts for you folks.:)
Our master bedroom was originally two rooms, a bedroom and a sewing room. But, later the two were combined to make one large master bedroom with not one, not two, but three closets!
I kinda love it.
One is mine, one is his and one had my dresser and a coffee station in it for years.
But, not anymore! Out with the dresser and in with the desk! It’s extra perfect, too, because there is an outlet in the closet for a lamp and printer.
To get started on the makeover . . .
First, we shiplapped the back wall and vaulted ceiling creating an accent wall. You can read how we shiplap in Closet Makeover Using Shiplap.
Then, I found a desk on Craigslist for $150 and added my french chair that I reupholstered with an union jack pillow to remember my alma mater.
I hung a wooden wall organizer from Ballard Design inside and tucked it just out of sight.
For the accent wall, I decided to use a fern wreath as a focal point and found some vintage paint brushes on Etsy. Our family is second generation professional painters and that made these paint brushes extra sentimental for me.
I was able to fit everything in the drawers that I needed to and just displayed a clock, lamp and a wire desk organizer.
We are already loving the new office in the closet and the simplicity is proving to be very preventative in the accumulation of future clutter. Bonus! Oh and my abs are thanking me, too!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour of the new closet office! What creative things have done in order to create office space?? Leave me your stories in the comments below.
