    27 Pieces Of Double-Tasking Furniture That'll Make Your Home So Much Better

    Mirrors that are jewelry organizers, tables that are fire pits, and a stool that glows!

    1. A tufted velvet futon no one'll believe is actually a futon 'til you fold it flat into a chic guest bed.


    Excuse me, where was this in August 2006 when I was moving into my freshman dorm? (And I discovered this item just after I snagged a velvet sofa on sale from West Elm. Sigh.)

    Get it from Walmart for $279 (available in five colors). And check out another version with a different back.

    Get it from Amazon for $79.04+ (also available in blue). And check out a smaller version.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    4. A fire pit that can moonlight as an outdoor table when it's daylight or not quite nippy enough to require a heat source.


    It requires propane gas, so we're Hank Hill would approve.

    Get it from Amazon for $549.99 (available in four styles).

    5. A *lockable* mirror cabinet for storing your jewelry collection and admiring how that necklace you forgot you had looks with your ensemble.

    Urban Outfitters

    This will not give you Greyscale.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $329.

    7. A charming hall three as a hardworking piece for those without a dedicated mudroom. Tbh, hooks, a shelf, and a bench are the essentials anyway.


    Get it from Amazon for $155+ (also available in a gray finish). And check out a similar one about half the width.

    8. An end table you can park your current reads in and use as a TV tray when you're gobbling down some dinner and catching up on your stories.

    9. A pet house that'll hide the litter box and act as a storage spot for your reading material in "the library."


    Promising review: "This was easy to put together and works great. I got one for each cat. The pictures are true to color and it matches my other furniture pretty well. Neither had an issue with getting used to, they both used it right away. I did need to buy a smaller litter box, you'd either need a low sided one or you'd have to cut the front down on a higher sided one." —Elizabeth
