Ok, you may think I’ve been dragging my feet about revealing my closet office but really I haven’t. I have a bunch of posts I’d like to write about the nitty gritty of how this closet office came to be, but I just can’t seem to get them written yet. So, I’m going to go ahead and just show you the whole shebang now and I’ll back track later. So without further ado…
We removed the wall next to the closet to reveal the whole closet space. You can see the entire demolition HERE.
Then we covered the wall with this new plank wall. You can see the easy plank wall installation HERE.
To make the desk for this space, we turned an old dresser into this great desk. All of the details of that project are found HERE.
So, what do you think?? I LOVE it!
I’ve got much more to show you. You are NEVER going to believe what we made those top cabinets from!!
Be sure to follow along to get all the details about my new office space.
I love it, you are so talented!!
Thank you Chari. I have a great helper!
This turned out great! It really opens the entire room up, and I like that it doesn’t look all claustrophobic like most closet turned offices you see. I love it, and it caught my eye at the C.R.A.F.T party–I had to stop by!
I would love it if you stopped by our Facebook page, and said “hello!”

Great job! I’ve always though making one of these would be neat. Thanks for sharing!
So, so amazing what can happen in such a small space! I love how cozy and functional this space is! Thanks for the great inspiration. Happy Tuesday to you!
Just found your blog and it’s incredible – it will take me days to catch up on all of your wonderful posts! AND I love your office in a closet.

Many old homes have these “skinny” closets with one little door that opens to a long empty area difficult to access or use. Wonderful redo here. In a bedroom, we once opened up an entire wall of the room to provide more closet area.
Fabulous! This looks great and I know it will give you years of great use, much better than a closet! Super Job!

Luv what you have done to that closet turned office. It is an amazing transformation! Have noticed the kitchen island and wondered if it was also a transformation? It is lovely and if it is what I thought great job! You are very fortunate to have a talented husband to compliment your artistic skills.
It turned out stunning! Talk about a huge transformation!

That’s great! Plenty of work space AND storage space.
What did you do with the beautiful old door you removed?
That old door is being saved for another project 😉

Love it! I would love it if you joined me over at Check Me Out Saturday Link Party
Great transformation! The plank wall looks fantastic.
Love your redo! I’m in the middle of a closet to office project myself. It’s kind of fun to knock a wall out!

Carrie- I just LOVE this! Thank you for linking up with Mommy Club -Wednesday! Tonight at 8pm when the new weeks linky goes live (here: http://milkandcuddles.com) I will be featuring you Link up! Congratulations!!
This is awesome! Great work! I’m quite impressed with how you completely transformed a ho-hum closet into a perfect little office space.
Wow! This is amazing! I thought we were doing good when we turned our closet into an office, but wow, nothing like this. In our defense, the house was for sale, so I didn’t want anything too permanent. I am so impressed with this. It’s just beautiful. Great job.
This is freaking amazing. thanks for inspiring me, now i’m going to walk around my house and see what walls i can open up 🙂 http://www.handmadeintheheartland.com

This is absolutely charming. I love the white, and it is really clever the way you fit it into this space. Great job. It looks like a professional make-over–should be on TV : )
I love all your ideas!!! I have grandchildren and my mother living with me and could use all the help in getting us organized and finding space. Thank you for your ideas. I love your kitchen, please tell me what your island is!

What did you do with the wall stud? Did you just knock it down or did you use a different thing for the structural support?
