If you've followed my journey, you know that once I became a single mom, I moved in with my mom for about nine months. Once I was ready to move out on my own with my daughter, I got my tiny little place; a 550 sq ft one bedroom that is basically a studio with a large, built in closet separating the living area from the bedroom/bathroom.
It's great starter apartment, but I've had to get really creative with our space in order to keep things looking organized. I like to have our spaces divided as neatly as possible, even with everything so close together.
The main part of the house has four different spaces: dining, living, play, and art.
Here's where dining, living and art intersect:
See my makeshift bookshelf above the built-in closet? Here you can also see that there is no door to the bedroom; I hung a curtain rod and use a light blocking curtain as a door.
And here's our art and learning corner:
And here is the living area next to the play area. I did my best to break things up by dividing the colors: pink for November's play area; green and blue for the living area across from the couch.
And, if you count this windowsill herb garden I made over the summer (how we built the shelf deserves a post all of its own!), we have a fifth area: our indoor mini garden!
