Room Reveal :: The Loft

 My loft was in sad shape.  I shared a little bit with you about my efforts to add some character to the space. Here is what it looked like before.  Please excuse the little boy.

Just in case you needed me to recap the things that weren't working here....
  • No adequate storage
  • An old table does not a TV stand make
  • Sad, empty spaces
Now, for the afters....
I did a little craigslisting and came up with the TV stand, couch, and lamp.  Now we can all fit on the sofa for family movie night.

And finally, my mother-in-law had this table/chest in her basement.  It is the perfect accompaniment to the couch and it stores all our board games easily.

What spaces in your home are next on your green re-vamp list?

Our home was built in the end of the 60' to early 70's and with that came the coat closet and linen closet..side by side..min 2 foot of space in next project is removing the doors and moulding then cutting the wall out between the two and adding new longer , deeper shelving ... this will not only hold linens it will hold kitchen gadgets such as my kitchen-aid mixer and crock pot etc so every time I want to use them I don't have to run to basement..
I can't wait for project to begin!
on your nice room
