Dreamy Trees In the Sleeping Loft

This post is in partnership with Homes.com. We couldn’t be more excited to share with you the wallpapered sleeping loft at Tree House! The journey to get here has felt long, hasn’t it?

The space that once held a faux brick fireplace surround-slash-wood-stove-combo has since been holding down a rickety plastic folding table and a set of 4 metal chairs – with a lot of, ahem, patina.
