Home Tour: Loft Bedroom

Ok, this is a bittersweet post. Excited to share another Home Tour with you guys but it will be our last from the loft. Yep. We’re moving again! More deets on that later(promise!). But before we say goodbye to the loft lets check out the Bedroom since it had some of my favorite DIYs to date!

Home Tour: Bedroom

Copper Plant Stands: This was the first time I’ve worked with real copper pipes for a DIY and I was instantly hooked! This project comes together so quickly and requires very little supplies. Plus it dresses up even the most basic pots!

Home Tour: Bedroom

MALM Nightstand Hack: I feel like we’ve all had some variation or piece from the MALM collection. Its solid, inexpensive, and super affordable. Unfortunately its also very basic. Hacking these nightstands with hardware and chalk paint completely customized them with minimal effort.

Painted Throw Pillows: Speaking of minimal effort… these throw pillows were more like a coloring book exercise than full on DIY! I loved the design and price but they didnt fit our color scheme as-is. A little rose gold paint and fabric medium changed that real quick!

Home Tour: Bedroom

Rose Gold Lamps: A little rose gold paint was also key to these lamp makeovers. They started out a basic college dorm room lamp from Target. With a coat of rose gold paint and new shades they coordianted perfectly with the nightstand hack!

Home Tour: Bedroom

Painted Fabric Chair: This project was a long time coming! We bought this chair when we lived on the east coast with plans to reupholster. After a bit more research we quickly realized that project was way more work than we actually had time for so it sat as-is for some time. Once we moved into the loft I was ready to find a better solution and its no surprise I decided on paint. After a little research and a few fabric medium tests I found the perfect paint solution! Its been months and this is still my favorite reading spot.

Customized Planters: There are always those last few touches that complete any room. For me this generally revolves around plants(yes Im an aspiring #plantlady!). This post showed a few ways I customized store bought planters.

Gallery Wall: like I mentioned in the original post, I put these in every space we move into. I love the symmetry, repetition, and clean design it brings toย our spaces. This hack helps get them up quickly and with minimal effort. Plus I love the subject in this set of prints! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Home Tour: Bedroom

This loft bedroom was one of my favorite spaces. I loved the airy open feel and the gorgeous light we woke up to every morning. It may also be the most DIYs Ive managed within one space! So have you added any DIYs to your master bedroom? Tried any of the above in your own home? You know I’d love to hear all about it in the comments!

Home Tour: Kitchen

Its been a while since we moved into our loft. For quite some time the kitchen was in a constant shuffle. Its one of the most used spaces and I may(ok, definitely) be particular about how things are situated. My only excuse is that I do 99% of the cooking in our home. Ha! So now that things are just right I thought it was time to share the Kitchen Tour!

One of the best things we did when we moved in was make this kitchen island. We have shuffled the contents here and there but overall its stayed the same. And we LOVE it. This adds so much extra storage to our kitchen and our most used items are conveniently within reach.

Home Tour Kitchen

Some of the shelves are open for storing larger items and others we’ve found containers for. We’ve used a combination of collapsible bins and magazine organizers for most everything. And lastly, we found the perfect adjustable wine storage! This took some trial and error but when this is built into a square it fits perfectly in the cubes of the expedit shelves.

We also attached this magazine rack to the far side for lid storage. I just love these things! I’ve used them for years even before we built this island. They have been discontinued at the stores(Ikea) but you can still grab similar ones on Amazon. Ive attached them to kitchen carts and even the inside of kitchen cabinets. Its honestly the best way I’ve found to keep lids organized so far.

Kitchen Tour

Other easy organizing products Ive found are wood trays and chalkboard labels. The trays I’ve painted to match the rest of the decor in the kitchen. And yes, of course I used chalk paint and wax! So far these have held up really well and the wax finish cleans well with just a wet rag. The labels I found on Amazon and I use them on EVERYthing! I cut them to fit on smaller jars and use the full labels for larger canisters.

The other thing Ive added here and there is plants. I used to have the hardest time keeping ANY plants alive but something about this place is turning that right around! I think the amount of light we get in the loft is playing a big part. It may also be the plants themselves. Ive narrowed it down to a few varieties that are pretty indestructible. Generally speaking, I can keep succulents and philodendrons alive. Lets all cross our fingers that they are still alive after this is published. Ha!
