Craft studio would be nice, but I think I'd have to go with library. (Both of these are somewhat weird choices considering I currently have ONE room, which is bedroom, living room, office and well... craft room and library.)

Love it! You got rid of everything weird and awful and kept all the good parts. :)


Before & After: A Vintage Bathroom Gets a Charming New Look

I started using up all those little sample sized toiletries, half empty bottles and so on rather than buying new during the January Cure. I haven't bought anything but shampoo and toothpaste in three months and both my wallet and our bathroom are thanking me for it. :D

What nycgreenmomma said! At first look I didn't even notice that the counter was the same. Great job and do-able even for someone without lots of cash at hand.

Oh, I am excited about this one. Kind of reminds me of my previous apartment's kitchen. Didn't look as bad, but same issues with wiring etc. Also, as tiny and as little (if not less) cabinet space.

From a fellow small space dweller, I salute you and am looking forward to following your process. Good luck, Jennifer!

Yeah, as a student of the social sciences, while I am confined to a small space (and tiny budget), none of these except MAYBE the last one would work for me. I will always have piles of books, notepads, folders, a calculator and all that on my desk in addition to my laptop. Best to just embrace it.

It probably tells you way more than I care to share about my DIY adventures that I realized where this story was going well before you revealed the problem. :D

Yeah, probably April's Fool (I should just stay away from the internet today), but this would make so much sense.

Amazing job! And probably the most unanimously positive comment thread to date. You should feel very proud. ;)

Planning on going nuts on our tiny (about 2qm) balcony once I'm done with my last paper. This is the first time I've had a balcony and even though it's in a bit of a rough state, I'm pretty excited. These just make me itch more, to finally tackle that project.
