Two closet offices in my bedroom

We recently changed rooms in my house, forcing us to move our computers into our bedroom. I love my house, but it is seriously lacking in rooms and storage space. We got creative with our small-ish master bedroom: my husband built a closet for his computer and we turned the existing closet into an office for me. I couldn't stand the thought of having blah spaces for the computers in my bedroom, so here is what we did!

Here is the before of my closet space:

Ugly black dresser stuffed into the closet...yuck!

And here is the after!

We built a custom desk into the odd shaped space

I created my own stencil to decorate the walls in my office

The paint looks black, but I actually used silver stencil paste. I used stencil vellum and hand cut my stencil with an x-acto knife. A little time consuming, but worth it!

And I have a spot to hang my purses in this odd storage area that was pre-existing

Here is a picture of my hubby's closet space before:

Please forgive the ugly state of my bedroom from last year!

And here is a picture of Steve's office:

We built this into a pre-existing storage space located behind the wall that runs the length of the house.

Lots of work to be done still, but its a start! More pictures of my office decorated and organized to come soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Did you use vellum to create your own stencil? Did you hand cut it or use a digital cutter?

    Love that damask!
