Entertaining in a tiny apartment (or any apartment at all) can be a big challenge, so we asked HGTV’s “The Cousins,” Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri to share their best tips for pulling it off with style (and space) to spare:
You have the murphy bed, the murphy door, and now the murphy bar! This DIY mini bar gets mounted to the wall and Colanieri says it only costs $20 to make. “The idea here is it’s off the floor, so you’re not taking up that critical square footage in the house,” says Carrino.
How to Make a Pop-Up Table
Carrino says Floyd (a furniture company) sells table legs separately so you can pick any size tabletop you want to go with them! (The tabletop they used is from a company called Real Antique Wood.) For easy storage, he says it even comes with a nifty canvas bag so you can put the legs away, and slide the tabletop under your bed.
