What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? Our biggest challenge in furnishing our home is finding pieces that are multipurpose. The dining room table also serves as my desk and the baby's changing table is an old dresser I bought at Goodwill. I've always loved this glass-topped wood coffee table that my mom gave me but my husband hated how much space it took up in the living room. The third or fourth time he stubbed his toe on the leg, it went into the basement. We found an ottoman at West Elm that is a coffee table and extra seating and no one's broken a toe yet.
