What’s Behind Door Number 3? A Closet Makeover

“A place for everything and everything in its place.” –Goodrich

In March 2014 we became home owners. Since moving in, we have been busy turning our house into a home.

When walking through our house during the home buying process we noticed that our upstairs bonus room had a double door closet. Inside this closet was a set of built-in shelves. While we had planned for the hubs to have an at-home office in one of the spare bedrooms, I wondered why this closet couldn’t become my “office”.

Soon after school let out last summer I got busy planning and choosing a paint color.

I should probably tell you that I love everything neutral. My design motto should probably be “50 shades of beige”, adding in color through accessories, of course! But, I decided that this space should be a little brighter and more cheerful than greige (gray-beige).

Cue, blue! I taped off the built in shelves and closet walls and got busy painting.

After painting and replacing the shelves, it was time to do what I love most, decorating! A few mason jars, baskets, craft supplies and frames later my “office” was finally complete.

Decor Tip: Fill your work space & living spaces with items that make YOU happy! I have my great, great grandma’s teaching certificate framed on the second shelf.

I knew my “office” would be the perfect place to craft, grade papers, write emails and now…blog! DeskAccessories

What I learned? Never underestimate the potential of a closet. You never know what may be just behind lucky door number 3.
