We just sneaked a peek at a preview PDF of the upcoming January issue of Martha Stewart Living and thought this idea was a great do-able one for small, smart spaces. Now you see it...a small home office located in the center section of three bookcases in the main living area....and now you don't: (check below the jump for the non-office view and details on the diy project)
This set-up is simply three bookcases encased in a frame, with a hollow door on tracks.
The door can be placed centrally when the office is not in use, and simply slid over when work beckons.
The full how-to and plans will be available on the MSL site after the release of the issue at this link.
It's part of a multi-page feature article called "Hidden Assets" all about hiding the useful, but not always beautiful, items that we all live with. It will appear in the January issue, available on December 17th.
