Closet Turned Office Reveal

Office 4 days ago
We had a coat closet in our dining room. It was really just a junk collector that I struggled to keep organized. Then the brilliant idea came to transform it into an office space. After taking out the old closet, cutting out a portion of the wall, reusing old furniture and thrifting, we were able to create this practical and very beautiful space.
  • The reveal of the closet office.
  • This is the tiny closet before.
  • The wall to the left was removed revealing the entire closet space.
  • After the closet demolition.
  • We installed a plank wall to cover the damaged plaster walls.
  • A repurposed dresser became the desk for this space
  • Craftsman style cabinets were the perfect touch for the wall cabinets and my designed and built them himself.
  • The before and after of the closet office.
