I LOVE our home, I really do!
It’s the first home Bobby & I ever bought together and its the home we had our children in.

We are actually in the middle of a small addition in our garage right now which will soon be the boys’ playroom. Originally, we talked about using that space to make a home office, but after much thought & deliberation, and 100 toys later…I decided that space would be much better utilized as a playroom!
And as happy as I am with that decision I am still wanting (and needing) a home office space!

And it HIT ME….

I can still have a home office…

We have a coat closet in our living room that gets used for coats (of course), umbrellas, scarves, hats, gloves, etc. But I started thinking…all of those items could be stored in our
bedroom closets.

If I utilized the other closet space I had…I could use the coat closet space as my….

Woo Hoo! (Happy Dance!)

I am soooo excited!

So I know by looking at it now…..

you may not see it….
but trust me, its gonna work!!! 

After a little DECLUTTERING that is…. 🙂

Do any of you have a closet office space like in the pictures above?

Are any of you in need of an office? Would you consider using an available closet space for this purpose?

  1. Yeah! I think that is a great idea!!! You can do it. 🙂
    There is a closet in my son’s nursery that I have always wanted to make into an office. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out.
    Thanks for sharing it with me!!!

  2. I love this!! Thanks for the info.. I had no idea about the linky party! I would love to have a “Closet office” cause when it’s messy (as all craft rooms are) you can just shut the door! LOL I’m now following you!
