What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The challenge: Finding a way to fit into my space without sacrificing personal style or breaking my budget.

The best resource: My local Community Education Center. I've taken woodworking, sewing and floral arrangement classes to help me turn my ideas into a reality. The classes were inexpensive and provided me with the basic skills needed to create a space that was truly my own. I designed and built bookcases, shelves, my bed, coffee table, throw pillows and window treatments. It may not be fancy, but I was able to achieve my goals without going broke.

I guess it's true what they say about teaching a girl to fish...
