Bedroom Nook

I haven't posted a tour of my master bedroom yet because of this random nook it has that I don't know what to do with :(

The nook is about 5.5 feet wide x 7 feet long and the ceilings are just over 6 feet high but they open up to 18 feet high where my bed/dressers are. Also, there are three doors that occupy part of the area: the entrance (to the left), one leading to the master bathroom (straight ahead) and one leading into the walk-in closet (to the right).

Dining Room Ceiling Medallion

Confession: I have a bad habit of buying things for "projects" I'd like to do but then never actually get around to completing them until months later. Case in point: I had purchased a ceiling medallion for my dining room in the beginning of the year but only got around to putting it up a few weeks ago.

I don't have a very good before picture because, well A) I was excited to finally get the medallion up and B) my boyfriend started the project before I got home. However, I was able to dig up this old photo from sometime around Halloween (apologies for the horrible lighting).

I don't know if you've spotted it or not but there's some of the original builder beige paint showing towards the base of the pendant lamp. Why? Well, right after I moved in, I painted the tray ceiling yellow. Like school bus yellow. I didn't get a sample, I just saw the swatch in the store and bought a gallon of paint. It was awful so I re-painted it charcoal, which made the ceiling look like a black hole at night. Don't ask haha

Owl Mail Holder

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for white ceramics (especially of the animal variety) so when I saw this white owl at Ross for $6.99, I knew it was coming home with me.

The tag said it was a vase but I thought it'd be more practical as a mail holder :) Agree?

What's something you own that was intended to be used as one thing but you're using it as another?
