When you have a small space, it isn't always an option to put your home office in a closet, or even a corner of a room. Sometimes the dining room table is all you have. The good news is, if this multi-purpose island made of metal and wood is your table, then you're set!
We spotted this fabulous custom piece over at Design*Sponge, where the "before" photo shows a small space, but it was one that was just large enough to really have dual use. The top of this unit folds open to create a double work space or extra large dining area if friends are invited over. Drawers, shelves and storage all reside below, and the best part is that it can move anywhere and everywhere with wheels.
