Who doesn't love a good closet-turned-desk/nook story?
We started renting a storage unit in our building because we decided to turn our spare room closet into a work station. We both work from home occasionally (I do more often than him), and as much as I love the fact that I can cuddle on the couch while analyzing data, it's nice to have a big old work surface other than our dining table.
So, a closet desk it is. We have about 5'X2' in there to set up a nice spacious surface, and so that's what we set out to do. I wanted to build a really simple modual desk with shelves below for baskets, and a couple picture ledges on the wall above.
The shape will probably end up looking close to this (OK, I actually already built the desk and it's been sitting and waiting to be finished and photographed for weeks!):
I'm excited to finish this project and blog it for you all to see! I'm even more excited about what we're planning on doing to our entry way closet...;)
