Office In A Closet! - Updated - My office is finished!

 I am linking up over at DittleDattle and Amaze Me Mondays!

 I have been slowly working toward making an organized office in one of my guest bedroom closets.  I can be messy around a workstation so having an office that is out-of-sight is the best thing for me.  But, the way I have it now is too cumbersome.

Well I was just googling closet offices to get some more ideas and look what I found over at EZArchitecture!!

I think I could control my bad habit of making a mess if my closet office looked like either one of these.  Which one do you guys like the best??

I LOVE the wallpapered office!  I can just imagine how happy one would feel when they opened their closet doors to an office like that!!

Updated: Well, as much as I love the happiness of this office, I did not want to spend the time wallpapering inside a closet!  Too much work for me!  and we have our house on the market so I thought better of painting the backside of the doors.  But this is still my favorite of both closets pictured!
Updated: This is the office style that I went with!  And thanks to Walmart, I was able to purchase some things really close to what they used in this office!

So...What do you think of my office?? I still have to find a chair that will fit inside once the doors are closed.

Very cute both !~! The aqua in the top one made me smile and the mirror treatment in the bottom one brightens it immeasurably. I love the idea of closing the doors and having wall space to decorate them.

They both look great! But, I need multiple closets! One for the office, one for a beading station, a huge one for crazy quilt projects, and the list goes on. Wouldn't that be grand. Just open the doors and create...and close them back and have a nice tidy space. Great idea for your closet!

I love, love, love the color of the aqua office!

For many years my sewing room was in the space under the basement stairs. We installed pegboard and shelves, additional outlets and a light fixture. When I sat at the machine everything was at arms reach. After the last kid moved out, I claimed a bigger space but the closet is a very workable space and has a door to close and keep everything out of sight.
