A lot has changed since the last loft update. I had found these amazing pics online of someone who had used the pieces of a wooden fan to make a spiral staircase, and immediately ordered a pack of fans on Amazon. Of course the loft needed an old iron spiral staircase!
Once I had it built, it had to lead somewhere. Since it was so big and open, with such high ceilings, I decided it would make sense for there to be an upper sleeping area.
But the new upper area was much too small for the previous bed I had built. So I made a new, smaller one, that seems an even better fit for the loft asthetic.
A little while later, I decided the area under the upper sleeping area would make a perfect kitchen. I built the sink area out of balsa wood, and a plastic blister pack some screws came in. The faucet is just some plastic toy bits and pieces cut and glued together, and painted silver. For the record, I swear by the Valspar silver spray paint as the best, most realistic metallic I've ever used.
I also added lights, both to the high ceiling, and in the kitchen. 1st round was just some globe style string lights.
I also had some great finds online. I found an amazing miniature cast iron stove, a salesman sample, that is a perfect 1/6 scale. The couch is from etsy seller MiniPlacesStudio. Check out their page, as they do some amazing work.
About a week later, I found these amazing industrial looking enclosures, also on string lights. I couldn't wait to get them home and get them installed.
Overall, I'm feeling really good about how this has been coming together. I still have 1 more brick wall segment with windows to finish. and there's always a bunch of detail work I'll be adding. But feeling pretty close to done, and ready for a new photoshoot.
