:: office in a closet ::

I don't think the Hubs and I have ever had a more productive weekend (post-baby anyways!). We repainted a cabinet, organized 3 boxes worth of papers "to be filed", and created this mommy cave for moi! It's in the closet of our spare room and I love it!

I got the office in a closet idea from a showhome we saw a couple of years ago and I am so happy to finally have a space to blog, write cards, pay bills and keep organized. And I'm determined to never allow the filing to get out of hand again. Should help that it we managed to condense everything into one accordion file.

In case you are wondering....

Desk: an antique from my Dad
Shelf: Ikea
Vintage fabric bunting: Knotted Nest on Etsy (love her and she is Canadian!)
Clock: Kvarta - hacked to add Amy Butler scrapbooking paper (thanks IkeaHacker!)
Purse: London Fog Crossbody tote from Beyond the Rack (they have Burberry handbags today *drool*)

I'm thinking of jazzing up (did I really just say that?) an Ikea table and chairs my Dad got for Hunter at a garage sale so he can have a little space in the room too. Love this.


  1. LOVE it!! With such a small space you have to stay organized!! I love all the personal touches.
    I wonder if I can shove my hubby's office into a closet...

  2. Thank you! And good luck if you can convince your Hubs to do a similar set-up. I know mine likes to spread out his stuff all over the place! Our whole basement is a testament to that :)

  3. Such a fantastic idea! I am definitely, keeping this for some inspiration.

  4. Great Idea Morgan! It looks wonderful! You have very much inspired me this morning to create a "me" place....

  5. Super cute Morgan! how very practical :)
    Plus I love that we see someone's adorable little face reflecting in your laptop screen!

  6. I love office closets!! Nice work, that antique desk is fantastic.

    Just found your blog and looking forward to reading more!!

  7. It looks fantastic! I heart your blog! (SweetTan from WB)

  8. I love this! It looks so great! I'm feeling inspired to do something like this ... I suppose I should wait until after the babe arrives though .. I'm due in 12 days! :)

  9. You did a great job! Everything looks great! Would love to have a cozy office like that. *inspired*
