DIY Closet to Homeschool / Homework Nook

4 materials
2 Days
Our oldest started school last year, and we wanted a space just for schooling. The closet in my office was the perfect space. It only took us one weekend and $50 to complete the project.

(Details better explained in video)
Pick a closet, and let the transformation begin. We chose the closet in my home office, so that we could work together.
Empty your closet, and remove any rods.
Paint your closet. (Or wallpaper it) We chose blue because it's our son's favorite color & we already have some leftover paint.
Arrange your furniture, first. That way, you can see where you have room to hang shelves. We used a small side table as a desk & a bookshelf.
Hang your selves. We hung ours over the desk.

Hang accessories. We chose this bar and bins from Ikea, so our son would have a place to put his school supplies.
Lastly, add plenty of bins for storage. These are from Dollar Tree.

Now, if we could just get our son to keep his space clean. Haha.
We just love how this tiny space turned out! Now if we could just get out son to keep it clean. Lol
