In early 2014 we downsized to a cozy apartment.
I used Floorplanner to figure out how to set it up.
We lined the living room with bookshelves that held everything from office supplies to Christmas decorations. More on that here.
We made our little kitchen more functional by using the walls and adding an Ikea island. More about the kitchen here.
The dining room was basically a big hallway with four openings. We defined a dining space by painting one wall almost black.
In that same space, Zach built a shelf with hooks and a ledge for alcohol.
The bathroom had a pedestal sink – no counters or cabinets – so we relied 100% on the walls to make it functional. See all the details here.
For our bedroom, we sanded and stained two Ikea nightstands from the as-is section.
They turned out differently which made for a happy “his and hers” accident.
In the nursery, we DIY’d most of the art, including this bear:
Apparently I never thought to take any pulled-back shots.
We lived in that apartment for just over a year. It was such a happy home!
