Another quickie from Country Living!

I just love Country Living’s online features. This link came in their e-newsletter today.  Check out their Small Space Solutions.  I’m not crazy about all the color schemes, but the ideas for arranging furniture and making the most of tiny spaces are great. I especially loved this bed nook, which reminds me of the one my mother created for me in my small room when I was growing up:

Mine wasn’t nearly this fancy, and it wasn’t literally a niche’ in the wall, but it was heaps of fun. My room was 9×12, so my bed went at one end of the room, framed by bookcases at the head and foot and a wooden “valance” connecting them with a curtain rod behind. I had white ruffled curtains that made the nook feel like a storybook princess’s bed. I loved that spot! It wasn’t expensive to create, and it made my cozy little room very special.

There are so many good ideas for using small spaces — post your favorite links in the comments if you have some fun space solutions to share!

    I love Country Living magazine, too!

    We also live in a trailer, actually a modular home. We are fortunate enough, though, to be on a cul-de-sac bordered by two ponds, a creek, and two old bachelors. The landscaping makes this lot very nice, also.

    I really appreciate your ideas for making our living space peaceful and inviting regardless of the size or location.

    God bless,
    M. Wilwering

About the Queen…

Amanda Livenwell is the pen name of a stay-at-home mom who shares the adventure of living large on one income in, yes, a double-wide trailer! Join our family as we say goodbye to suburbia, trim down, and start saving to build our own home. We're going to talk about doing it yourself, living beautifully on less, making do or doing without, and counting it all joy in the process. We'll cover prep-work and painting, refacing kitchen cabinets, flooring on the cheap, tiling over laminate, upholstering furniture, and just rolling up our sleeves in general. If you love home improvement, this is the place for you. Let's get cracking!

What Inspires Me Most!

"She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. She girds herself with strength, and strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good, and her lamp does not go out by night. She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle. She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness." ~ Proverbs 31:13, 17-19, 27

"Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings;he will not stand before unknown men." ~ Proverbs 22:29

"The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich." ~ Proverbs 13:4
