This master bedroom just needed a face lift. No major construction or renovation. As a matter of fact it was done on quite the small budget. I wanted a brick wall behind the bed but after pricing it out I decided I would make my own. And let me tell you, it looks real!

Adding electrical wiring for wall sconces. I'm not sure why a builder would put one outlet right behind the bed in the middle of the wall, but that had to change. We wired up two receptacles with a light switch for each wall sconce.

The brick panels have been put up at this point, but they're not finished yet. In case you missed my previous post on a German Smear you can find it here on Hometalk or you can see the full tutorial at Recaptured Charm

After the German Smear was done on the walls you can see what a huge difference it made in the brick panels. It just brightens up the whole room. I really wanted wall sconces as my nightstands are not very big and the lamps seem to take up half the space.

The dark furniture really pops on the antiqued brick panels and the white walls in the room.

Update on above the bed. Awesome little addition that I found at Michaels.

After a little rewiring and paint and of course some new linens the bedroom has become a little retreat.

    Did you add any moudling at the top or sides where the panels meet the ceiling and side walls ? I can’t really tell In the photo.

      No, I didn't add any moulding. Because all joins are covered well with the drywall compound, you dont see any spaces where the panel meets the ceiling or the walls. Try to keep it as natural as possible to keep it looking like a real brick wall.

      No where near tired of it yet. I still love it so much. The room is so cozy and inviting. Nope. Might take a long while to get tired of it.
