double duty pieces for under $250- versatile enough for a small apt. or a growing family

Sometimes our lives change so quickly and we need simple pieces in our homes that can do double duty from day to day, week to week and even year to year. These are four great pieces that can work for a multitude of uses. The Hable sisters design such great, strong canvas pieces. This Lemon Beads Storage Box, $98, from Hable Construction can work for magazines, files, homework, closet organization, baby supplies or just as a great tote bag! The Go-Cart Carbon Grey Three-Shelf Table on casters, $129, from cb2 can be used in an office, as a bookcase, in your garage for tools or athletic equipment , for toys and crafts or even an island in your kitchen.  A wood Strap Storage Side Table, $249, from cb2 can hide messes in the family room and still look chic next to a favorite chair or it can dress up the bedroom or closet by doubling as a sturdy hamper. And last my not least, an item I personally own in white, the Slim C-Shaped Table, $199, from Room & Board. This little table can be moved anywhere in your home! I use it as a side table next to the sofa, a cocktail table to hold drinks over the edge of a chair, a work desk for my computer and a reading table to place a book and drink on since it slips over the side of a chaise. And the best part is it comes in a lot of different colors! – Lynn Butler Beling
