Closet Office – More than Rubies

With a new baby on the way and a craft room turning nursery, Amber from More than Rubies was looking for a place to organize her craft supplies and create an office space.  After a lot of research, they decided to turn the guest room closet into an office. Here are some pictures of her inspiration:

First, they cleaned out the closet (before):

Second step was to re-vamp an old computer desk (a GoodWill find).
They used 7ft piece of plywood to extend the desk top to fill the closet.


Sanding, priming, and painting.


After getting the painted desk and desktop into the closet, they added some side shelving for additional storage…



As a finishing touch, they added a piece of molding to the front of the desk so that the plywood addition wasn’t so obvious. It worked out perfectly!


Now, they have an fun space for Amber’s craft supplies and a small organized office area!

The total cost of the closet re-model was about $100 dollars. Amber plans to find curtains to cover the opening for when it’s not in use.  


Creative use of space, Amber – I love that it’s so organized/out of the way!  Thank you so much for sharing your hard work!
