Q: I'm wondering what to do with the nook (larger photo below) in the bedroom of my Baltimore rowhome. The stairs run on the other side of the wall, so this nook is what would have been dead space above the stairs. It's pretty deep, and has a "step" inside it. The previous owner installed white wire shelving, but it's not particularly useful.

Purses and items I don't use much have ended up accumulating there, as well as a small TV. I'm short, so nothing I use often will work well there. I've got so many other projects in the works I haven't had time to wrap my brain around this awkward space and I'm hoping your readers have some bright ideas.
