Office Closet and Room Finished

Pin It

Office in a closet is done.  I have been moving into other areas of fun, painting and drawing again, photography and of course quilting, I just needed more table top space.

I wanted this to cost nothing, this is the THIRD redo on this ONE closet. I did good only a quart of paint for inside the closet. Board for shelf we had and just a lot of time ! 

The paintings on the wall, are my applique patterns, they may be purchased here on my Esty Shop (patterns) I did them on canvas boards with acrylic paints. 


What I see as I walk down the hall
 when I look in, 
it makes me HAPPY !

Working Office Closet Finished

Pin It

I have my office closet put back together and so far I'm liking it. This was a project that took nothing but time and a quart of paint. A lot of time to reorganize and move things around.

I have used this Ikea set for about three years, I love the drawers and Husband hooked the table top down for me and I like it better now.

Adding the corner unit was all Husband, he added 2x4's all around the back wall, to make the corner solid.

Making a Closet an Office

Pin It
I have my closet all cleaned out. Things moved to under our bed, and into our master bedroom closet.  Time for paint. Husband talked me into keeping the top two shelves as wire and I really don't care. I can't get to the top one without getting on a chair and it's just batting and my quilt frame. JUST.

 I taped it off to have strips, that was a no go after I started painting, not needed.

I have a SECRET, Making a Closet an Office

Pin It
My Secret...I have so MUCH fabric and for the second time, in three years,  the closet is getting redone??? 
I know, I know, but I don't like working in this room. So, this is my project, but I know Husband will have to help with a few wood cuts. Oh...I hope only a few.

The Rest of the Bird Story

I was asked about a photo that I posted last week HERE

HUSBAND and his friend, BUT the Heron NEVER got into the Water. 

"Why are you here?" Husband asked.
