Finally our closet office makeover is under way!
We (as in my husband!) kept putting off making a proper computer desk for the closet in our guest room. I'm a strong believer that unless you have a real office, computers should not be apart of your decor! So having our computer out in plain sight was not an option! I need to be able to see the computer when I need to use it, but hide it when it's not in use!
We lived in a condo prior to moving into our current home, and before Eden was born, we had a spare room that we used as my husband's office. When Miss Eden came along I was forced into putting the office in our dining room! It drove me a little crazy, but my husband promised to keep things nice and neat! The one good thing that did come out of moving the office to our dining room was watching my husband, who is in no way a Mr. Fix it, pick up power tools! There is something so sexy about seeing your husband do things around the house!
So this project was nice because I got to see Earl in action again!!
This was my inspiration
So in true Sherika style I have to show off the project before I've even finished it!
I have no patience!
Remember this is what I was working with before!
My husband hard at work! We already had an MDF board, so we just went ahead and used that for the desk.
Eden also had to get in on the fun!
Once the desk was already up I decided to add fabric to the wall because it was looking pretty boring!
Using fabric I already had from Walmart for 1.99 a yard...how awesome is that!
I used small nails to put the fabric up
The best thing about this makeover, the four letter word... FREE!!!!
I already had all of the materials!
I covered some shoe boxes with contact paper for storage! I plan on making labels for the boxes!
The white boxes at the top are from Walmart.
Here it is!!!
