When I first got this house, I mentioned how much I loved this open area upstairs that I call the loft. It started out looking like this (more info here):
There's been a few more changes since then. I finally got the loft, hallway and stairwell painted in fall of 2012 (I'm late posting about that update....). I wanted something neutral since it's a transition area and I finally decided on Light Pewter by Benjamin Moore. It's a light gray color and I have loved it in this space so far.
I also bought a mirror and rug for the room. I bought the mirror on Joss and Main and I think it's so cute. I just was being lazy about hanging it. The rug came from Homegoods, it's really not big enough for the space, but I don't care. It's colorful and I love it. :)
Here is how the room is looking now, after I FINALLY hung up the mirror!
On the other side....
There's a short story behind this table. I bought my dining room table in 2012 and when I did, they sent 1 and it had a busted up corner. I got the table from Overstock and if you receive a damage item, you can go to your account on the webpage and fill out a form for damaged items. I did this and they said that I would received another one and that I could throw the old table away. I thought they would take away the old one when they gave me the new one. Throw it away?? Why on earth would I do that? It just has a dinged up corner. Sooo, I just moved the old one upstairs and put the messed up corner up against the wall.
