Name: Dex (1.5)
Location: Toldeo, OH
Division: Single
Room Size: 72 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: We are constantly decluttering, packing away clothes that don't fit anymore and unused toys. Living small forces us to be a lot more efficient.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: I wasn't thrilled about the paneling at first, but it ended up inspiring the cabin decor. The room used to be an office and it was very dark. To brighten the room, we painted the windows and trim white. They were originally stained the same color as the paneling. The dingy ceiling was painted a very bright white. We added the white light fixture to the ceiling. Basically we added white wherever we could.

Favorite Thing About This Room: The built-in shelves have been so handy and add character to the room. Diapers, wipes, books, etc., are stored on the shelves, which makes the lack of space less of an issue. I also love the suspended vintage toy gondola!
