ORC Week #6- The Final Reveal

Well it is here! My Master Bedroom final reveal. I never knew 6 weeks could fly by so fast. In another 6 weeks it will be Christmas Eve. EEK! Just some food for thought. I am not ready at all for Christmas, are you?
I did not post anything for week 5 because I was having connection issues and couldn't get my computer working. Sorry about that.
Make sure you check out all the other guest participants over at Linda's Calling it Home blog. I have my favorites and I can't wait to see how they did.

Here goes! Let's get to the pictures, because that's what really matters. First we can take a look at where we started.

This was the listing photo. That wallpaper came off easily, but the glue took days to wash off.

Here is the After

I created this this vanity area because my bathroom is smaller than a closet. It is very difficult to get ready in there. I really like sitting down and taking time to do my hair and makeup. That little door on the right you can barely see is my husband's walk in closet. It is surprisingly big on the inside and gives him plenty of room to keep all his things.

I like that I can see most of my jewelry hanging here. It makes picking out what to wear much easier. My favorite thing about hanging the jewelry here is it is hidden from view when you are standing in the doorway.

Here is the other side of the room. I painted all the doors Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams. I can't wait to paint all the doors in the house this color. It really makes a big difference.

The bed is definitely the focal point of this room.  The reason I did the panels over the bed was to hide the small off center window. The valances and bedskirt were custom made by me, but the panels are ready made. I also fabricated the euro shams and large lumbar some time ago. We have moved so many times recently I never got a chance to do anything else. Thankfully we are settled here in the Pittsburgh area for a while now.

I am very pleased with how the room turned out. The only thing I didn't get checked off my list is the planked ceiling. It was the one job I could not do on my own. Since my husband has been traveling or busy with work most evenings lately, he did not have time to help me. I am still planning on doing it, because there is a hole in my ceiling from moving the light fixture to center over the bed. You can see it in one of the pictures above. It cannot easily be patched so it will get covered up. I think it will take about 2 more weeks before that's complete. I hope you will return to my blog to check up on my progress. I have a whole house to complete and will be posting updates here. You can also follow me on Instagram @ Charla_Szweda. Thanks for joining me on this wild and crazy ride! And thanks to Linda for all she does to promote the One Room Challenge.
