Work Space Make Over

Let's cut to the chase, here is my work space...unedited and in it's current state.

To say the least, it's time to get organized and make this area a little more appealing to the eye (then I'll actually WANT to work there). My husband will appreciate me spending less time in his office...I tend to take it over when my area is out of control. Here are some of my color schemes...you know I love blue, teal & green...I really enjoyed taking these simple pictures.

I found these great shades of teal at a local paint shop, and bought these lovely green knobs at Anthropologie ON SALE.

What I'd like to do is paint the whole of the desk a medium shade of "sea breezy" teal...replace the current knobs with the pretty Anthropologie ones...and then cover the INSIDE of the shelves on the desk with some vintage wall paper:

Another idea I'm beating around in my head is painting the inside of the shelves with chalkboard paint...allowing myself to doodle and write down ideas in a fun way while I'm working:

Basically I'm hoping to create a vintage workspace simliar to this, but on a smaller scale that works with my desk. How cool would this be though? Anyone have an empty closet they aren't sure how to use...welp problem solved!
