I finally finished our home office closet conversion project. Here are some of the first photos of the finished – at least for now – space. I’m sure the look and clutter of this home office closet will change as I use it more.

Over the weekend, and a very rainy Saturday morning, I was able to put most of everything in place in my new office closet! And I can say that it looks even better than I hoped. Some of the design details changed along the way (as design projects normally do) but so far I have been able to adapt and take advantage of the unexpected features.
I left off the second shelf on the back wall for now because it cast too much of a shadow over the laptop area. I still would like more room on the desk top so may end up purchasing a wire shelf to put the printer on (a wire shelf will allow the light to pass through better) and taking advantage of the extra desk space.
But for now I have moved in, been able to work for several hours without too many changes to where I placed items that I need on a regular basis, and overall I am very happy with the space. And the best part, I was able to finish up my work and close the doors, both mentally and physically, on work for the day. Priceless!
And speaking of prices, the cost for this whole project was less than $20. In the end I had to purchase a desk top made out of MDF since the we found that the walls in the closet were not quite square and the re-purposed shelf was slightly warped after all.
I added a decorative ribbon and white upholstery tacks along the edge of the mdf board to hide the round wood.
The MDF version only cost $13 at Home Depot and then I spent around $5 at Walmart for the cork board squares, which I covered in fabric but will cover the little details of the space in another post. For now, I’m just very happy to have my paperwork out of sight and off my kitchen counter tops.
