Small alcoves offer great opportunity for smart storage. Simply add some shelves and you turn a redundant space into the perfect spot to display your treasures or, in my case, hide away some standard office items. Our home office door masks this storage area when open, so to keep our work space clear and clutter-free, we installed four shelves to store things we don't need regularly - photo albums, notepads, craft supplies and spare tech.
The project took us a couple of days as you have to wait for the paint to fully dry before peeling off the tape.
