I want to thank Tara for inviting me to do my first ever guest post. I feel so honored, and hope I do it justice. I love visiting here because I enjoy all things crafty, and diy.
If any of you have happened upon my blog, you will be well aware that we have been in renovation mode for an eternity, and there is no end in sight. Most of us have dead space somewhere in our home, and there are many ways it could be utilized, and sometimes it gets so overwhelming we do nothing, or we can't decide what would work best. That's okay. Families circumstances change, thus their needs change. So there is no right or wrong. We had a dead space which is a doorway we filled in. It has been a dead space for a few years. Only last week it hit me what I should do with that space.
Here is what was going on there:
Okay, but not what I wanted long term. Notice the depth of the space is quite narrow, so it limited me as to what I could put there. Here is a couple of clues about where we went with it.

After a couple of failed attempts, we found we needed to counter-sink the screws. That did the trick. I was beginning to think my great idea was going to be a no go. Here is the result:
It 's going to work great for us, because while I like to hang decorative things up there, it can also be put to good use with things like hats, coats, bags,
I hope this has you thinking of how you might utilize some spaces you haven't considered before. Thanks for having me Tara, it's been a pleasure.
Please stop by for a visit!
