My husband and I have made a life choice - to purchase and live in a "smaller" house. It's just over 2,000 square feet so I feel silly calling it small. Folks from the Northeast or Europe would scoff at that statement. But in Charlotte, where McMansions seem to be the norm, trust me, people consider our house small. It works well for us though....with 5 warm bodies inhabiting it at all times. It can get tight though and, therefore, I am always searching for ways to make more space.....given what we have. For several years now, I have been contemplating turning the closet in our computer room into an office/workdesk. I saw an example a few years ago in Better Homes and Gardens and I've been thinking about it since. My idea/interest has been reinvigorated because I came across this image yesterday. WOW! I really love it, mainly because of the Graham & Brown wallpaper used. I found this image on the Country Living website .
If I work up the courage to take on this project, I'll post my before and after pictures here.
