    Is there a way to make the right column a little bit wider and the post space smaller?

    there might be, by editing the stylesheet of the theme - please post a link to your site to illustrate what you have so far.

    you can use a browser inspection tool such as Firebug to get a better idea of how the theme's columns are formatted.

    Right now my site is visible at http://www.debidearest.com (It should be dearestdebi.com just waiting for my dns changes to take effect.)

    How familiar are you with CSS?

    in style.css (around line 75) these two styles are defining the widths of the sidebar and content area:

    #content {width: 600px; float: left; padding:0 20px 0 0;}
    #sidebar {width: 299px; float: right;}

    unchecked - there might be more styles with width definitions (?)

    you will also need to edit this background image which does the vertical separator line:
    /wp-content/themes/delicacy/images/content-bg.png

    I'm not too familiar with CSS, I'm reading a tutorial right now. I have courses in html and java script so just updating now on CSS.

    Thank you for the info Alchymyth, once I'm done reading my tutorial I am going to see if I can make some changes, after a back up of course :)

    thank you, thank you! I was able to fix it the way I want. :)

    Well maybe not.. I got the size changed and edited the image but yet the content space is still the same.

    yet the content space is still the same.

    looks ok to me;
    can you post a screenshot of the problem, or a link to a specific post/page where the problem is obvious?

    have you cleared the browser cache?
    'ctrl f5' or 'reload' or whatever...

    either make the sidebar even wider;

    or add this to style.css:

    .wpInsertAdWidget{margin-left:-16px!important;}
