Small Cool 2010: Lacey's DIY in the Details

Teeny Tiny Division #5


Who Lives Here: Lacey Location: East Village, NYC Size: 290 square feet

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? My proudest moments are in the details. I recently made a trip to the hardware store for paint and left with a power drill so I could add wheels to my desk and a lesson on installing a light dimmer. Those DIY projects keep it interesting and fun.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? The refrigerator was my biggest challenge in this space. There is a small nook in the kitchen where I thought it would fit and it turned out that you couldn't open the front door without hitting the fridge! I do not want to have to shimmy into my apartment everyday, so it has become a part of my living space. I have tried to work around it by treating it like a wall and butting my desk up against it. I'm sure it resents me for ignoring its presence.
