So... we are mildly obsessed w/ HGTV at our house and LOVE a good project!! We have also been trying to decide what to do w/ the bonus/loft for the past year. I have been using it as a studio, but other than that, it hasn't been a very "functional space" :) This is an old picture, (before I really even got the studio stuff together) to show before
And... this is AFTER!!! (The best part)
I'm not sure why... but I LOVE designing and decorating and the WHOLE process. I love to score great deals (the curtains were custom made and I got them at an auction and the couch at the rooms to go outlet for less than $300!!!) and make things (the cornice boxes and pillows) and re-use things (the armoire and ottoman we were storing for Ash in our garage). So it all really came together and in budget!
I love the fabric that I found... but I ran out on the last little orange pillow, so I just used a left over piece from the brown one which gave it a cute stripe :)
Braden's room was the last room in the house to be tackled (mainly b/c we could not agree on what to do!!!) Blake wanted to do an entire "cougar" blue room all dedicated to BYU - his design included a LARGE "Y" on the wall (like Y mount - a true super fan). We finally settled on a sport's theme w/ two blues. My dad and Blake did the chair rail and we got the bunkbeds all set up, so now it looks like an ENTIRELY different room. Very fun :)
Well worth the 2 days of work!
