Improvisation...A Teaser

verb:  im·pro·vise \ˈim-prə-ˌvīz also ˌim-prə-ˈ\ 

Improvise - to make or create (something) by using whatever is available; to make, invent or arrange offhand.

This is the OFFICIAL definition.  In our house, it means to roll the dice and hope something good shakes out.  This is exactly what I did with The Bogus Room.  Rolled the dice...

The Bogus Room?  This room, remember? This SPACE, this THORN!

I don't know why I've let this space get under my skin so much.  It is an odd-shaped room, and normally, I would embrace the challenge of trying to decorate it. Not this time. But, I felt I needed to do something with it, anything with it.  I don't like empty rooms!  And I currently have TWO!  While tooling around buying groceries in Target the other day, I had a vision (uh oh -- guess you are hoping I went back to the eye doctor), an epiphany, if you will.  I decided to stop fighting the room and give in to a more unusual style, rather than trying to make "the usual" fit in this awkward space.

Below are a few teaser photos.

I will take photos of the entire room and post them later this week.

I still have a few odds and ends to figure out for this room, but it is mostly done.

Improvising all along the way.

I suppose this is where I should say that I'm not good at improvising.

What do you do with a room you don't know what to do with?


  1. I would not know where to start with such a large space. I do love the sneak peeks!

    1. Thank you! It is actually quite small, with alot of doors. That's why it has been such a dilemma for me! :-)
