Do you need a working area and feel like you don’t have any space for it? You don’t have to have a room to create an office space in your home. Today I’m going to show you how to turn a small area into a perfect organized working space for your computer. This can be a place to do homework, pay bills and even blog. I created this small office right in our Master Bedroom. I am loving it and I use it all the time especially at night.
I want to show you how small this space really is so you can see that you can really do something like this in a very tiny area.
This wall is just 3 and a half feet wide and it went from this…
…to this little happy yellow office.
Let’s take a closer look!
Desk and Storage
When you have such a small space you may want to look for a desk that has plenty of drawers.
The first thing I did was to give my little red desk a makeover… you can click here to see how it used to look.
I painted the entire desk yellow and then I decided to bring the wood top back.

I left the inside of the drawers red and I added a little chevron wrapping paper to the bottom of it.
Little things like this can bring a bit of sunshine to your work day!
There I stored my most basic supplies such as pencils, stapler, sticky notes, and chocolate.
Another great addition to a small working area is a cubby.
They are perfect to hold mail and those items that you use often.
I spray painted mine and I think it is adorable!
Because this is an open area I wanted to be not just functional but cute. So instead of using a regular pin board I came up with the idea of using an old window as a bulletin board. I love the look and it took me like 20 minutes to do it.
This is such a quick project. I first spray painted the window, the color is Valspar Flat Caramel Honey.
Then I screwed the small hooks in the corners of the window and I used wire to create a place to hang things from.
You can find all these items over at Lowe’s… I love that store!
Ready to hang and hang things on it!
So there you have it… I hope this post inspires you to look at your own walls and see a world of possibilities!
