An Awesome Closet-Office You Don't Want to Miss

By No. 29 design on Apr 12, 2013

The cl-office is officially finished! I first started off with a closet with sliding doors. I painted it using chalkboard paint and then added some storage. I then built a floating desk and added wall mounted lighting. After adding some office accessories from The Container Store and Home Goods, it was done.


Let me show you how far it has come...


The storage area to the side is starting to fill up and has stayed nice and organized.




Some craft storage was added to the shelves using kitchen storage containers. They are clear, so they makes a great display!




The top display shelf has some animals at the moment. It’s a great shelf for a collection!


There is plenty of room under the desk for a number of things. Our dog’s bed fits perfectly under there. On some days it has been an art gallery, other days it has been a quiet reading space complete with pillows and a blanket covering the front to keep little brothers out.





This has been one of my favorite projects to date. It has transformed my daughter’s bedroom and is now her favorite spot. I can see this cl-office serving her needs for years to come. The room actually feels larger since there are no doors covering the closet anymore. The chalkboard wall has been a hit with everyone, as has the ability of it all to become a fort at a moment's notice. It has helped my daughter stay neat and organized since there is really no room for the clutter to hide. Everybody wins on this one!
