That sounds about right. I like your ideas on decorating. My place needs a lift. I've just celebrated my 5th yr breast cancer free and I need to do something fun. Keep the ideas coming.

The only downside I can think of is that it could feel very closed in sometimes. So perhaps a mirror on the far end to reflect the space outside the closet would be a good start.

Look on West Elm. They have window treatments that look similar to this.

They are from West Elm but they were 2011.... I bought them for my den and added a trim on the bottom.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to How to Turn Your Closet Into an Office
5. Jazz the space up as you would any other room. Make the area feel special by using wallpaper or a fun color on the walls.
Since Killy and Oliver work from home, they had to think of a way to incorporate an office into their small space. They carved one out of a niche in the living room and hung floor-to-ceiling curtains to close it off (and give the couple a respite from work) when not in use.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Punch Up Your Shelving
With ingenuity a workspace for two is created within a main living area behind drapery panels. The station feels special through the addition of a yellow and white striped wallpaper, against which the black elements and collection of white pottery pop. Next: Browse photos of home shelving design
The pair also turned a niche in their living room into a full-blown office for two with built-in desk and curtains to hide work away when the "room" isn't in use. Read more about the office and, of course, the rest of the house in their Houzz Tour.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 11 Ways to Create a Multipurpose Office Space
4. Now it's an office, now it isn't! Use simple division to change the function of a room. It may take nothing more than a curtain to literally store the whole office out of view of the rest of the room. Do it right and hang luscious full-length drapery. When they are closed, the remainder of the room can be an inviting guest room, a peaceful sitting room, literally, whatever you want. Decorating the office area behind the curtain to coordinate with the rest of the room assures that it looks great even when the drapes are open.
Think smart and install curtains to hide away working areas like a mini office.
Samantha Schoech added this to 15 Rooms That Excel at Double Duty
Behind curtain number one: a workspace for two! When the drapes are closed, the entire thing disappears, leaving the living room for living.
Allison Lind Interiors added this to 8 Ways to Hide Your Home Office
Pull open the curtains and let a cheery wallpaper entice you to get to work. When you’ve punched out for the day, close up the curtains to conceal the workspace. The subtle pattern on the curtains helps blend the hidden office into the rest of the room, while the bright stripes are a fun, unexpected surprise.
