This year is all about getting organized. I am a pretty well organized person but there can always be some improvement. I need more room for all my plates that I use for my tablescapes. I think this area would be perfect. Actually I think that it would make a great pantry if it was near the kitchen. At least that is what I would do with it or even possibly make it a wine cellar. This is what I call a strange nook that is across from the dining room. Our home has what I call a strange floor plan. It is a ranch with only one bedroom above ground so it is perfect for empty nesters but I think that it should have a least one more bedroom.
