I live in a tiny tiny house (125 ft2!). Everything must do double-duty: be multi-functional and be appealing. When I first moved in 3 years ago, I instantly disliked the awkward and thick drywall “wall” which held up the left side of my closet’s hanging rods and partially separated the bathroom from the closet. This dividing wall was bulky and made the bathroom feel claustrophobic. At a rummage sale one Saturday I bought a 6-foot by 2-foot wooden bookcase with 6 shelves. I painted it granny-apple green and with the help of a friend, easily popped out the offending wall. The bookcase then replaced the wall, providing me with much-needed storage as well as air and light circulation, reducing the claustrophobic effect immensely. I hung an inexpensive full-length mirror on the bookcase’s side, this saving precious wall space.

I LOVE multi-functional furnishings!!
