Create a Home Office Under the Stairs

2 Days
Looking for extra space in your home? Have you looked under the stairs? We took an under-used, overlooked space under the stairs that used to hold old Monopoly pieces and playdough and turned a 3 foot by 12 foot space into the perfect home office.
We built in filing cabinets under the stairs and added a picture gallery and bulletin boards and enough organization to satisfy a busy family....all for under $200.
So here's to a tiny space that is......truly living large!
A built in desk and shelves were made from scrap lumber and finished off with a gray painted trim.
We ordered these filing cabinets online and built them in under the stairs.
Before of the room under the stairs. Dark and dingy!

    Love this !! I would love to know where you ordered your file cabinets from. Hoping to do a makeover in a similar spot. Thanks, Whitney
