Genius! That's much easier (and cheaper) than I was expecting - and my husband will appreciate that there will still be some storage options. Thank you so much, and nice job!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

15. Remove a door and create a hideaway office. Even a tiny closet can be transformed into a workspace. Replacing the door with a curtain will help the nook feel more inviting and give you a bit more space — and you'll still be able to close off the room.
