However, in practice, the doors were rarely closed because I am almost always listening to music. I decided that the wardrobe might serve better as an office armoire.
As it turns out, an IKEA wardrobe makes a great office because it's deep enough to hold an actual desk. Putting the desk inside the wardrobe makes it sit a few inches higher, a wonderful bonus for me as normal desks are always too low for my tall self. My printer and shredder fit neatly under the desk, while the slide-out tray makes using the keyboard and mouse easy.
On the desk is a decoupaged tissue box raising a lamp with lace-bedecked shade to proper height. The top shelf holds decoupaged boxes.
Drawings of a vintage typewriter and vintage scissors serve as artwork.
The purple flower (with black lace and ribbon added by me) is actually a tape dispenser. :D
I'm so pleased with the result! I can work very comfortably at the desk. When I'm done working, I can simply push in the keyboard tray and close the doors. The wardrobe looks nice in the corner of my living room.
