Time's up! And thank goodness. Having a finished room is great but the mess and upheaval that go along with getting there can be a bit much at times.
A very big THANK YOU! is owed to Linda, at Calling It Home, for hosting this crazy incentive to get a space finished. The One Room Challenge is a platform allowing us all to follow along as 20 design bloggers redesign a space. She also allows anyone with a blog to link up and share a makeover we complete in the 6 week time frame.
This is my fourth time participating in the ORC. Our maiden voyage was a complete redo of our laundry room, then we tackled our front porch a year ago, and last fall we did over our son's bedroom. This time around was a face lift on our formerly nondescript master bath. So nondescript in fact that I never even took any adequate before pictures. But I do have some afters!
This was truly just a face lift. There was a lot of paint involved and not a lot of time simply because we were out of town for around half of this 6 week time frame. But I am loving how the deep walls turned out with the crisp trim and high wainscoting. The turquoise vanity really pops and the brass accents really glam it up in my opinion. We did intersperse the brass with some oil rubbed bronze as well because I love me some mixed metals, and I think too much brass can really go over the top. But I love the space so much and it has been so nice to have a finished, "adult" space to get ready in. Even the hubs commented that it was nice to have a grown up space again since we gave up our old really nice bathroom when we moved. The One Room Challenge is such a great kick in the pants to really push through and finish a space, and I'm so glad this round is done.
Now it's time to rest . . . . and go see how everyone else's room turned out!
