We're so glad you're here! We've been transforming spaces together for the past five years and slowly renovating our own 1950's home. Join us as we create a home we love!

Hi, we're Jake and Sarah

Loft Makeover

This weekend, I teamed up with Ajai Guyot from @truehome_ for a Loft makeover. Here is the space we started with:



For the main wall we used Behr Ultra black matte (no special mix, just straight black paint).

For the left wall, We installed beadboard with this nail gun (custom cut with a table saw and jigsaw for the little window) and painted it with Behr “Pacific Dunes” in a matte finish.



We wanted to add sconces around the window without having to hardwire them in. These sconces from Home Depot are only $33 each. Then, we added a custom look by frosting the glass and painting the hardware gold with Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze spray paint. We avoided wiring them in by placing small remote-controlled puck lights inside.



We built a custom bench for this space as well. We used 6′ 1x2x12 for the seat, 2×2 for the legs and supports, and 1×2 to attach the legs to the seat (materials less than $20). You can find the tutorial for this build on @builds_by_kristen’s Instagram by clicking here.


Custom Art

Ajai installed a budget-friendly (but expensive-looking!) custom art feature that tied everything together so beautifully. She is releasing a tutorial this Thursday on her Instagram account.

For finishing touches, we added a jute rug from Lowe’s and plants in baskets: a fiddle leaf fig, rubber plant, and lots of pothos.


We are so happy with how this loft makeover turned out, and we had such a blast working together!
