It is Loft Reveal Day!  Oh yea and there’s a “few” other reveals over at Linda’s blog – Calling it Home today too!  Did you check out yesterday’s reveals!  So good right?

My daughter has a volleyball tournament this weekend which means I have a lot of sitting and waiting between games so I plan on checking all the participants rooms, I have a feeling it may take awhile to get through!

Enough with the yapping and onto the good stuff. Let’s do the photos today and we’ll do the sources in my next post.

The Before

The After

As you can clearly see the loft is teeny tiny.  Maybe 6 feet by 10 with awkward bump outs to boot.

The loft is primarily a spot for my son to watch his DVD’s in mainly because this is the only television that has a built in DVD player. (Although we are a netflix type of family we also have lots of kid’s dvd’s from when my daughter was little and my son loves watching them now!)  It’s also the area my daughter’s friends seem to hang out in while Sloan is across the hall in the bathroom getting ready.  (Even they don’t like to be in her messy bedroom!)

I also keep the majority of my son’s books in the space.  He loves when I read to him (I suspect it’s because it prolongs his bed time) and I keep his books out of his bedroom now because he started tearing up his books at night after I put him to bed.  (100% boy)

The abstract art is actually not the piece of art I’ll be using in the room.  Unfortunately there was a shipping problem and it won’t be delivered into next week. (#typicaldesigndilemma) I chose this temporary piece because it has the same colors as my actual piece does and I wanted to have a finished space to show you all.  There was no way I was not showing off this space after 6 weeks!

I kept the bookcase pretty simple.  The space is too small for lots of stuff.  Plus I wanted to make sure my wallpapering job stood out!!

So that’s my space!  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop over to my blog and check out my loft.  It’s not quite as grand as some of the other bloggers but I am super proud to say that my space was done on a budget and I did everything completely by myself (except asking my husband to help me move the dresser upstairs!)

Please make sure to check out the featured designers from yesterday!
