Miss B's Home Office in a Closet

I went up to visit Miss B at her new apartment this weekend. While visiting she mentioned that her desk area was quickly becoming cluttered with law books, papers, etc.

She has amble closet space at the apartment, so we googled home office in a closet and got these pictures of ideas.

This was my favorite, but she can't wall paper so it was out.

This was also nice because of the color and lightening.

Off to IKEA we went to look at possible ideas.

Miss B did not like the orange, but this was a good temporary setup for the closet because you could take it with you at the end of the lease.
This fold down top was nice because of the work area it created.

These type file cabinets could be placed on either side
to provide additional filing storage

Boxes, baskets or containers could provide
more storage for the top two shelves that
already exist in the closet.
This black wood desk was my favorite, but I like
traditional and Miss B likes contemporary.

I especially liked the mini-lamps inside.
We got some good ideas. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
for Metamorphosis Monday.


  1. I've just completed an office redo and am fortunate to have a room. But I love the idea of using the closet space for an office!

  2. Ohhhh how fun! What a great space saving idea! dee dee

  3. What does Mr. B think out the additional work for him? I bet he would do anything for Miss B. Good Luck and I can't wait to see what you end up doing.

  4. I LOVE IKEA (and your ideas for a closet office)! I can't wait to see what you decide on. (And, thanks for leaving me a kind note about my kitchen Fall decor.) Take care, Becca (Adventures in Decorating)

  5. I'll wait to see what you will build :)
