I enjoyed the New York Times article about a Loft-transformation for $5,000, that I found via Darling Dexter. It became such an inviting place, sunny and serene.
I really like how they divided the living space from a new bedroom area with the Ikea Expedit shelf. See more images, before and after's and get more information about the costs and furniture right here.
