Ashli's Home Office That Was Converted From A Bathroom

It's true that some smaller home offices start out their lives as closets or nooks and crannies, but this is the first that we've seen that started out as a bathroom. The conversion was done in an artful manner, as this room also doubles as a craft room.

When you look at the photos, it's hard to imagine that this room started out as a bathroom. Granted, it was a smaller second bathroom that the owners didn't use much, but Ashli and Lee from British Columbia decided to do something big with it: they converted into a home office!

It all started when Ashli's husband Lee devised a plan to cap off all of the plumbing. This is cunningly hidden from view thanks to holes that were cut into the cabinetry. Thanks to this, it's always possible to reconvert the tidy home office into a full fledged bathroom when they sell their home.

The home office is also home to the couple's fish Nemo. It also doubles as Ashli's scrapbook and craft room. There are all sorts of things stored there, from knitting needles to yarn. Lee also uses it for his model cars. The computer and printer are stashed here. That's quite a bit in a 5' × 6' room. The room was painted green and accented with pink.

Materials

* The scrapbooks boxes are from Michael's Craft Store
* The ribbon organizer is from Michael's
* IKEA Kitchen Upper corner cabinet
* IKEA Lagan counter top
* IKEA Adel cabinets
* IKEA Ekby shelves
* IKEA ASKER wall organizer
* Wall mounted file holders were found on Amazon

This is a really interesting way of reusing the available space. Initially, the couple didn't have any place to store their computer and hobby equipment. Thanks to this conversion, they have a fully functional home office and craft room. Check out their post about their computer room here.
