On Friday I mentioned how last weekend I moved my desk area from the nursery to the closet of the guest bedroom, and I promised more details to come soon, well here they are! I got this great idea a while back from Jen over at iheartorganizing, who has done a couple of closet office makeovers in her own home. I was so inspired by her beautiful and functional desk space that I wanted to try it for myself! I know mine is far from pretty (and nowhere near how amazing Jen's looks), but I love how our closet went from this:
not to mention the nursery went from this (on a good day when my desk was 'relatively' clean & tidy!):
Obviously the guest bedroom (aka 'the office') needs some tlc: paint, a new light fixture to replace the bare bulb, baseboard trim, window & closet trim re-installed, new closet door, paint job for the door, not to mention some wall art and decor items! Its fairly low on the priority list though since the room is more functional than the sunporch :) At some point I will figure out a better solution to the gift wrapping items that currently take up the 2 upper shelves in the closet, but that's a task for another day. Overall I'm pretty happy with my new desk situation, and have actually spent some time working at it! My old desk spot was rarely ever used - I preferred the dining room table. Here's hoping now I can reduce the clutter on the dining room table by working more at my desk!
