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!

    This is one of my favorite spaces you’ve transformed. We made that counter in the laundry room an office space but it’s not quite as warm and cozy.

    It was there all along, your brain just had not wrapped around it! Necessity is the mother of invention! It looks great and tidy. I love the desk with all the details and beautiful woods. Good job!

      Yes, I guess that it true. A lot of things work like that, don’t they? Thank you for all your kind words!

    I love the shiplap wall; that gave your office space a separateness from the bedroom and a great backdrop for your desk, chair and wall decor. A+!

    Now, a question about your farmhouse tour post. I loved the tour! One picture showed a crystal glass of French Lemonade. Do you know the pattern and maker of that glass? It looks like Elyse by Tiffin – I have that crystal and love it! It has been discontinued for a long time! Thanks, Sarah!

      Thank you, Linda, I’m so glad we went ahead with this idea! As for the goblets, I inherited those brand new from my aunt. She said they were from Ireland. I just googled the goblets and you are right those are the ones!
