Before & After: Utilizing an Awkward Home Nook

Ever had an awkward space or nook in your home that never felt quite right? And then one day, an a-ha moment comes along with all of the answers laid out for you. Initially, Gina of The Daily B was left perplexed on what to do with her home's eyesore — but soon came up with a creative and functional solution.

The original homeowner probably used the noticeable nook for a larger than life vase (the house was built in the 1980s). Since the space is right off the high-traffic entryway, Gina decided to repurpose the awkward area into something useful. The most glaring omission from her home's entryway was a coat closet, so Gina opted to go vertical and install vintage hooks for purses, scarves and jackets. Being super crafty, she also fashioned a cushion out of pieced-together foam and decorative fabric. A couple of pillows add a welcoming touch, turning a potential eyesore into a warm and functional space.
