Turn a Small Bedroom into a Multipurpose Space

Welcome to my favorite room in the house, my cloffice! I've had been working on this room for over a year and it's finally finished. This is my closet, office, twirling space, and Mercedes' daily hang out spot. Oh, I can't forget to mention there's a beauty bar.

I had so much fun transforming this small, secondary bedroom into my dream space. Our house is old and with that some small closets. With that said, there was no way the main bedroom closet could've stored two people's clothing - so converting this bedroom space was the perfect solution. This allowed me to have a dedicated office and more than enough space to store all of my things.


One of my favorite things about my cloffice is all of the color. The space is vibrant and gets so much natural light. I ended choosing the paint colors based on my brand and tied all of the decor elements in around that scheme. I spend a lot of time in this room, so it was important for my personality to shine through. I absolutely love the final result. I've linked everything in the room at the end of the post.


I love the Rubbermaid closet system. It's a way more affordable option in comparison to systems available at IKEA and The Container Store. Plus, the shelving and brackets are easy to remove. So if we ever want to convert the space back into a bedroom we have that option. The best part is the system can then be used in another space.

We ended up removing the door from the existing closet and installing shelving and a vanity. It's the perfect space for all of my skin care and hair care products, and jewelry. The closest isn't deep (a little over 12 inches), so we had to be very strategic in selecting the vanity and wall mounted organizers.
