What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? One of the biggest challenges that I faced in furnishing my apartment was that all I had were my clothes and personal items. On top of that, my budget at the time was extremely limited. I bought the basics (bed, sofa, dresser, desk, and bookshelf) in neutral colors and added on. Each month I'd buy something new. I definitely found websites, blogs, and magazines to be inspiring. You'd be amazed how easy it is to translate expensive pieces into inexpensive, DIY projects.
