Thanks I have been trying to work out how to do this in my cottage and couldn't explain it or work out how to hide the area as it will be in the living area. Generally study's are untidy so it can be a challenge.

I know this is not so chic, but extremely useful, use bread plastic tabs to label cords so you know what goes where!

They're just held up on the back and side walls. They're only about 8" deep, so they're pretty stable...

Budget solution: your carpenter can also join two door slabs with hinges and hang them using hardware for bifold doors. Look for old doors at reclaimed wood warehouses to add more character and recycle building materials. Be green and save some green!

Another idea is to paint the doors with chalk board and magnetic paint. You could also buy black chalkboard contact adhesive paper.

It's a simple 1x1 piece of wood (a "ledger") screwed to the wall and the shelves are in turn attached to the ledgers. Look closely and you can see the screws attaching into the wall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Chic & Functional Home Offices
Turning closets into office spaces has become a wildly popular trend, and why not. If a home lacks another space to fit in a work area, this could be the solution. And the benefit? When work is done close down shop by closing the doors.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Long, Cold Winter Days—Bring 'em On!
Have a few home improvement projects calling your name? Have you been wanting to carve out a little extra space for a home office or craft room? Winter is the perfect time to tackle any indoor DIY projects.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Your Mission, Should You Decide to Accept It...
With just the closure of two bi-fold doors, this home office is fully capable of disappearing without a trace when unexpected company arrives.
Becky Harris added this to How to Turn Your Closet Into an Office
4. Measure again – this time for height. This time, determine the height you'll need for your tallest books and binders and add shelves accordingly.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 11 Ways to Create a Multipurpose Office Space
This office definitely looks like one, with its rolling ergonomic chair, adjustable desk lamp, and so on. But just as in the previous example, the entire office can be hidden, this time with folding doors. This office is in a closet in a dining room, but it works for any closet, even in a hallway.
