Do you have one of those awkward little corners you don't know how to decorate?

You're not alone if that makes you feel better about not decorating that little dead space. I've been right there with you. :/

This little corner in my dining room has been empty for years until about two months ago when I decorated my living room and created those two pieces of art you see in the picture below on the right-hand side.

  1. Can't wait to see what you do with your littler corner!

    1. Thanks Mary! I can't wait to share it with you. ;)

  2. I always love the decor of little corners when I see them but my tendency is to leave them empty because they are a challenge. Boring, right? I'm working on that!! Our new entryway doesn't have a space large enough for a big piece of furniture. You've given me some ideas here. :)

    Can't wait to see what you do. I know it will be wonderful.

    1. Ha, this little corner stayed empty for more than 10 years! :O Yes indeed, it was a challenge, but it's good to know there are lots of possibilities!

  3. These are all fabulous ideas Cristina. Thank you so very much for sharing.

  4. Wow! You really found some FANTASTIC ideas, Cristina. I am noting this so I can come back to it after we move into a downsized home. I just may need to employ one or two of these ideas. Hope you have a great upcoming weekend. xo Diana

  5. Great ideas. I am very interested to see what you do with your corner. I have a similar dead space in a nook by my stairs that I have scheming to place a Swedish style grandfather clock.
