The Cloffice

In our master bedroom we have his and hers closets. I don't acquire too many clothes and quiet frankly, I hate to shop! I can't even recall the last piece of clothing I bought myself, it would have been over a year ago. Oh wait, I just bought myself snow pants the other week, does that count? Anyhoo, both my husband and I take up just one closet so that leaves another one free for STORAGE!!! 

This did start out to be my area, but my husband has since taken it over as he likes the height of the desk better. I swear I didn't stuff him in a closet! The desk is an old school desk that I found in my travels and it did have silver legs. I spray painted them black, I think it suits it better. The storage shelf is an IKEA shelf & canvas boxes that used to be in our playroom. I inverted it, labeled the shelves & pushed it back in the corner. Above I have boxes labeled with like things as well as a large bin labeled "To File". This is where all the stuff goes until I have time to file it, which hasn't been in a while. Ah well, it'll be there tomorrow. 

I removed the closet door and hung a tension rode between the door frames to hang my curtains on. This way when we are working in there they get pushed to the side, and closed up when we're done. Quick, go clear out a closet & turn it into a cloffice!

  1. We did an office in our closet as well. (And our printer is tucked in a kitchen cupboard - quite odd, but useful!) It's nice having all of our essentials on our main floor, rather than having to trek downstairs for office-y things. I love your little desk the best. :) I'm looking for something like that to use in my son's first birthday decor.

    1. Thank you! Try some flea markets, antique markets or garage sales. I don't think I paid more than $20 for this one. It has all the charm of carved pencil marks in the top, ones junk is another ones treasure right? Thanks for stopping by:)
