The small space will heat nicely without costing too much. Just be very careful about making sure nothing hanging in the closet will make contact with the heater.
Sorry, I'm not trying to argue with you, but I find this to be bad advice. Again.. It's all about safety for me, and an unattended space heater is a ticking time bomb in my opinion.
I do like the idea an earlier poster had about the water bath with an aquarium heater, as I believe they are more stable and reliable for continuous use. YMMV!
