Clever Decor Ideas for an Empty Corner

When I was grounded as a child, I was sometimes told to go stand facing a corner, the intention being that I would have nothing else to do, in that bleak, unadorned, concave of wall, but reflect on whatever misbehavior I’d been up to. In more recent years, I’m past the age of grounding (I think), and there’s no longer that strange requirement for the corners in my dwelling to be sad and forlorn. For anyone hoping to increase the utility and aesthetic appeal of their home’s nooks and crannies, this rundown is for you.

We love how this DIY idea uses the concave of the wall strategically, to form the center of the heart shape.
