Upcycle an old closet into a small work desk/ home office (& your feedback is needed on this, thanks in advance)

Great to be back here again, myLotters! And so I have this upcycled work desk that I did (in a rush) yesterday because I need a shelf in which I can put my newly repaired printer on. Quick overview: I have a printing shop at home which assist customers whenever they want a documented to be printed out from their e-mails or USB, photocopy, laminate, invitation cards, souvenirs and all that personalized printing request that they may have. The last time one of my printers in the shop got wrecked by my 2-year old son and it didn't print out properly afterwards. I got really frustrated about what happened and I sent it out for repair yesterday. So then I saw my sister-in-law's old dress closet that is sitting in the backyard waiting for it to decay, LOL. I am always a fan of DIY, I normally use my free time searching for lots of DIY. My husband commended me for that but I'm always welcome for feedback. So in this pic this is my "rushed" DIY work. I need improvement on this, planning to paint it with a primer or so, or a fresh paint... But I'm still thinking about what more that I can do on this. Your feedback are highly appreciated. And yes, I have to declutter those cords in that shelf, guys. Give me five minutes ;)

I feel that this shelf is incomplete. One of my friends suggested to put a hole at the back so the wires would go there. I'm also thinking about putting hooks.

@resy21curapika Did you add the shelves too? Holes and hooks sound like a good idea for it too...

Yes, a good paint on it would make it looks a lot newer... Good job!

@resy21curapika I probably wouldn't go too far off from its original wooden color...
