The new loft!

Over the past few weeks, we've been doing some home improvement. We've put in crown moulding in the kitchen and family room and did chair rail upstairs in the hall. Well, since Justin was taking charge of most of this, I decided I wanted a project also. What was I thinking? This took me about 3 weeks to complete! (Since most of my free time is from 8-11pm! ha ha!) So, I painted our loft a new RED color and changed up the decor. Here's the before and after pictures of the loft.






I'm loving how it turned out! The boys love it too now that they have their own little lazy boy chairs! It's not completely done because I still have to put up drapes and some decor on the walls, but just wanted to post the pictures of it because I was really proud of myself for FINALLY finishing my painting job. For anyone that has painted in RED before, you know it takes like 3 coats. I had many late nights painting!!
If anyone has any suggestions on drapes or decor for the walls, pass them my way! I always love hearing new ideas!

I had a red kitchen in my last house, that was a pain to paint. I don't think I could have done it with a newborn! It looks great, what a fun place to hang out!

Ohhhh, I feel the pain of the red!! We just painted our kitchen red a couple weeks ago...we had to do three coats (after the primer) and it still looks like it could use another coat. I like the red...but I'm not sure I will ever paint with it again! Still, it always feels great to get a project done!

Wow! What a difference paint makes. The room looks great and so organized. I'm impressed you were able to find the time to do that...probably didn't get much sleep, but it looks awesome!
