The Attic This attic, like many others, could easily have become a glorified closet. Instead, it became a cozy home office, with a narrow writing desk and a pair of low, wide bookshelves that fit snugly under the slanted, wallpapered ceiling. A sisal rug, the wooden blinds, and a vintage-style light add to the room's warmth.
take doors off closet, paint, create shelves, install counter for desk area (look at Menards or Lowe's or Fleet Farm for 'odd sized counters' for sale), maybe mirror part of the back wall for 'light purposes, install outlets for plug-in stuff, slide plastic 3 or 4 drawer bins under counter for storage of office/scrapbook/craft stuff...voila!
work area by the window. Flank desk with tall bookshelves. Elongate area by hanging ceiling to floor curtains.
