We love updates from you, our readers! Reader submitted photos of renovation and home improvement projects are the gifts that keep on giving, in terms of advice and inspiration, and are amongst our most popular posts. Today, we're sharing an update from a Downtown LA loft we posted in January. I think you'll agree, it's looking House Tour ready....

Hey there. Just wanted to update you guys on my "work in progress" loft that you had featured a while ago. Since then I have done a few more things with bits and pieces from Ikea and wanted to share it with you guys.

The coffee table I got for 10.00 in the ikea as-is section. It was a dining room table but just cut the legs off and there you go.

The shelf units are Laxvik frames from Ikea but the white shelves are again, High gloss doors from the as-is section. The top shelves were 10.00 a piece and the shorter ones were 2.00 a piece. The whole thing cost me around 65.00 dollars.

One last thing. The prints of my original photos were all printed online at Costco. 10.00 for a 20x30 matte finish prints on archival Kodak paper. Not ink jets!!!

Hope you guys like the progress so far!

Thanks,
Alex [you might also recognize Alex's place from a recent seating tip post]
