Loft Make-Over...

After Matt's family was here over the 4th of July both Matt and I realized that our guest situation wasn't working and we needed to do some changes to our little abode. This was the loft before...I love this big desk but the bigger the desk the more junk I pile on it....don't we all? This loft was just a space that was a catch all and we blew up a air mattress for a 2nd guest bed right here in the middle......not very homey.......
 SO here is the AFTER!!! NOW>.....Disclaimer....those shelves are entirely TOO high and I hate them but they came with the house and they are not ours to move....so I had to work with what we can. Also our budget was tight so thanks to Ikea and Target we not only have a 2nd comfortable guest bed but I still have a desk space.
 The Daybed bedding is not perfect but I got it on sale at Home Goods and it was in my price point so  I made it work and by adding the fun chevron chair to the desk it not only gives me a comfy space to blog but gives guests a place to sit and set their stuff on! The daybed was also a perfect fit because it is perfect for lounging during the day!
 The lamp we already had and the chandelier canvas was from........you guessed it... Home Goods! I just wanted something small to anchor my desk. It looks better in person....for some reason this picture makes it look so bare!
 This Ikea daybed not only has storage but it also pulls out into a full size bed!!! BAM! And yes, it only took like 4 hours to put together! #nightmare
So there we go........ I love that this space is much more put together and more inviting to having guests stay also!!!!
