For years the space overlooking our great room has not been used.
It housed a sofa where occasionally one of the kids would sleep during the Holidays.
Recently my daughter and her husband bought their first home and the sofa went to live there.
All of a sudden there was nothing in the loft.
It didn't take long for me to figure out what to do with this wonderful empty space.
I purchased a little, old, chippy, white table with a drawer in it to use as a desk.
I filled the space with my shabby chic girly things.
Candles and flowers and everything pretty.
It's the perfect place for my vintage laundry cart.
All of my shabby things that I didn't have a place for now have a home.
It's a soft, quiet place for me
and a magical kind of space
where my grand daughter can play dress up when she gets a little older.
I'm really happy that sofa went someplace else to live.
