At first glance, this space above the bathroom in Brett's apartment looked like an unfortunate eye sore. But Brett saw this area as more than wasted space. He had a vision, and very specific goals for the small space. And his DIY solution is both attractive and functional.

Using 1/2 inch PVC piping from Home Depot and some standard wooden slats, Brett transformed this otherwise useless space into his bedroom!

Using calming blues, and a curtain to hide the water heater, this lofted sleeping space now looks completely natural to the apartment. Added bonus: the view from up there is killer.
