To be able to do that to my craft room I needed to make my closet storage work for me and store more, and I need to figure out the best way to fit a corner desk into a small room....
So here is the before of the closet and the craft/guest room (after everything in the closet was dumped over the room) - don't judge me. ;-)
First step - organizing closet. Over the weekend we built cheap plywood shelves (since we rent, we didn't want any more holes in the wall than there already were). Each shelf was a sheet of plywood - about $15 each.
I also took two suitcases full of stuff to the local thrift store. It feels good to get rid of stuff! So here is the update from today.
|Keeping things real with this picture. And yes those are three male beta fish in three vases, sitting in front of a space heater to keep warm.|
Still messy, but at least now there it isn't a 20 minute ordeal to get anything out of the closet. There are still a lot of things to find places for and stuff to get rid of.
Here is the list of things to do:
Organize Closet Take off Closet Doors
- Hang curtains on Closer & Craft Table
- Organize Fabric
- Build Corner Desk (No Big Deal)
- Hang Shelves
- Replace Art Work
- Hang Diploma ( and other pictures)
Build Shelves for Closet
Here are the ideas for the desk so far. Which one do you like?
1. Ana White's Eco Modular Office Desktop
I would have to edit these plans for a corner and slightly smaller, I think about about 7 feet total of space to work with. But I could make them myself, which would be awesome!
2. A Curved Desk
3. Parson Desk (also from Ana White)
Another DIY Project. Simple. And could have the extra space that I am looking for!
4. Buy Ikea GALANT Desk
There are so many other options, thanks to Pinterest. Now I just need to pick one and run with it!
