It's no secret we've had to get a little creative in our house when it comes to space. These little challenges are sometimes fun, sometimes not. This current project was actually one of the fun ones.
Little misses' room is what used to be our spare bedroom. Thankfully it's a decent sized room, so it can still hold a double bed, as well as her crib and dresser, for when family stays over.
But, it was also holding a desk and computer, which made it to be a little cramped. Enter in Pinterest and I saw a solution - turning your closet into a home office area. This closet wasn't used for any of her clothes, but rather random things - suitcases, my husband's work clothes, my preserved wedding dress, scrapbooks and well, just junk.
I brought the idea up to him and he was all for it. The only problem is he isn't a well-known handy man, but we conquered!
Here are the results.
Our home office now holds a hand-made desk, a new chair and shelves for all our papers (bills, tax info, important documents, files, etc.) I'm still debating on getting a cute curtain and/or fabric shower curtain to hang in the doorway to keep the office "closed off" when not in use. What do you think?
There are even two additional shelves up higher I didn't show, still holding some work stuff and my wedding dress!
What is even better about this, is getting rid of our hold desk freed-up a TON of space in her room. I actually enjoy walking in here now.
Now, if I could just get that iPad, Kindle Fire or laptop to have out of her room when I need to use the computer, I will be set.
