Although we no longer live in our tiny apartment, we look back on our time there fondly and are extremely proud of how we made our small space work for our big family–including our two Great Danes!
Our usable space was very small, so we decided to build a media console that attached to the wall. It eliminated the need for a bulky media console and provided plenty enough room for media components, drinks, and of course some toddler puzzles!
When we had our daughter, we made the office the nursery and relocated our desk to the dining room. By making use of a tiny corner in the room, we were able to maximize space and create a lovely small narrow desk.
One of the most dramatic makeovers we did was renovating our kitchen. By replacing the outdated cabinets with new Ikea cabinets, we were able to better utilize the small amount of space we had. And by painting the walls and paneling, we were able to make the room much more inviting!
