How To Decorate An Odd Corner Space

So I have a very odd shaped living room… long and narrow with two openings and a big picture window. It has been a challenge to figure out how to arrange the furniture in the space, especially because my husband will not give up his giant speakers and giant tv! But I have settled on a layout that works for us and have lots of plans to completely makeover the space. I want all sorts of built-ins to hide speakers and get stuff up off the floor so it is easier to clean up all of Oscar’s hair and dirt. But until the time comes to do all that I wanted to something that would spice up the room, its totally boring right now, and give me something pretty to look at. Plus, I have been acquiring lots of plants lately in hopes of becoming a “crazy plant lady” , so I decided to makeover this odd corner space because it gets good light for my plants.

Guest Bedroom Makeover - Before & After

Let me paint you a picture of the before…. We moved into our current house about 3 1/2 years ago. We downsized from a 2500 square foot home to a 1800 square foot home. I kept a lot of the decor and furniture from that home not knowing if it would work in our new place. But I also knew I wasn’t doing to have a ton of money to decorate the new place considering my husband and I were starting brand new career fields. So it all got put into the guest bedroom or like I called it the spare bedroom, because it housed all the spare stuff that didn't quite have a home. Also, since my new job (building) involved taking over the entire garage space all our camping and backpacking gear was in this room as well. Oh, plus a queen sized bed. So to say the least, no guests were sleeping in there.
