YHL - Winter Pinterest Challenge

Young House LoveThe Great Indoors, Bower Power & HiSugarplum are hosting another Pinterest Challenge to showcase projects inspired by Pinterest.  

My winter project was transforming my workout/playroom closet into an office which motivated another project to build a seated storage bench for the relocated closet items such as medicine balls, weights, bike pump, hats, extra shoes & water bottles.

After closet was cleared, we built a lower shelf, 18" L-shaped desktop with 3/4" plywood and  and 3 book/photo ledges 
Primed and painted.
I had my mom sew a curtain to conceal the items placed on the lower shelf.
Book/Photo Ledges complete.
The bench was built with 3/4" plywood 72"L x 31"W x 20" H.  The two back compartments measure approximately 34"L x 16"W x 20"H. 
The lower outer cubbies are 16"L x 12"W x 12"H and the 3 lower middle cubbies are 12"L x 12"W x12"H.  The upper cubbies are approx. 34"L x 12"W x 7"H.  The top of the storage bench is hinged for hidden storage.

Thank you, ladies, for hosting another Pinterest Challenge and welcome new readers from the winter Pinterest Challenge- looking forward to browsing all the new projects out there.


  1. Cuuuuute! I love the dark brown walls in there, and matching pillows and baskets look great!

    Where did you get the light for the closet? It's super pretty.

  3. I love the colours and fabrics - so fresh & fun :-) The storage bench looks really functional, and love the light fixture :-)


  4. Love the color scheme, love that you made a desk area out of the closet (I did that once too :) ), love your fabric choice, just everything = love! PS I am now following you :)

  5. What a great job you did with this! I have a closet office myself and love having that little corner of the world. I know you'll enjoy your corner, too. :-)
