Before and After: My "Office"

{Click to see my other Before and After and Decorating Posts :) }
Welcome to my new favorite room!

O.K. so, maybe it is not actually a room, but I just love it. My Man built these shelves for me this weekend, and he did not bat an eye as I purchased loads of coordinating baskets to organize all my desk junk and crafty items. Isn't he wonderful??? (and very handsome too??)

Enjoy these Before and Afters of My NEW "Office":

Before (Yes, my office is a closet. But it is ALL MINE!!! Mmwahahahaha!!):

Almost Finished (My man is Goooooood):After
So, this is where I will be sitting now when I visit you, my dear blogettes (and bloggedeers)!

16 friends had a thing or two to say...:

i want a man who can make an office in a closet!! ok, i'll take one who can't, too, (we who are still waiting at 40ish can give up a few of our dreams!) but it would be cool to have one who could... then i could have my man and my office, too! :) congrats to you!

It looks great! I love how you converted a closet into an office. I remember you telling me that one of your passions was finding a way to make the best out of the space you have ... and you have certainly done it here ... very nice!

I'm popping by from Kelly's Korner. What a cozy little office! I especially love how organized your supplies look in coordinating baskets.

I have a "cloffice" too and posted about it on my blog here: The best part is that when I'm done working and I can just close the closet door and walk away.
