Advice from the pros:

  • Your new desk can be nothing more than a couple of standard filing cabinets (shot with Krylon) with wheeled stands attached to their bottoms for easy moving. 
  • The desk's top? A chunk of melamine.
  • When decorating, treat the inside of the closet like you would a room. In this case with wallpaper and paint.
  • Skip bracketed shelves and opt for floating shelves for a less-cluttered look.
  • Make use of every inch of space with peg and cork boards.
