The One Room Challenge is over, but I wanted to do one more post highlighting my favorite spaces from the challenge. Please realize, there were over 140 transformations that took place during the months of April/May. Yes, I actually did go through every.single.one because they are all so exciting. I started making a list of my favorites, and realized I was writing down every room on the list, but, you can check them all out here at Calling It Home; no need to highlight all 140+ again for you. So, here are my absolute favorites, the ones that made my jaw drop, literally! These are in no particular order- they are all fabulous! Here are my top 12!

#1 Blue I Style- Under The Stairs Rock & Roll Playroom
There are about 3,742 things going on in this space (and it’s only12x3). Angela from blue i style created this space for her two little boys, and it was all a surprise to them (they didn’t even know this space existed until their parents revealed it to them upon completion.) From magnetic plumbing parts to sheet music art frames to a reading spot… this space has it all. I kinda want to get a call to babysit just so I can hang out in here.
#2 View From The Fridge- Entry Way
Katie at View from the Fridge (is that not just the greatest name for a blog?… love it!) transformed her entryway, and it is truly amazing. She is a fellow Minnesotan, so maybe I’ll have to stop by for coffee one day so I can see it; on-the-other-hand, maybe it would be weird to have a random stranger stop by for coffee… probably weird.
#3 Pink Little Notebook- Living Room/Dining Room
Sabrina at Pink Little Notebook actually took on 2 spaces in 1 with this living room/dining room combination. I just love the color palette in these rooms. If you click on over to the reveal, you can see how far this space has come in just a few short weeks. If I were Sabrina, I don’t think I’d ever leave this space, at least until I got hungry… or thirsty… or had to use the bathroom…
#4 The Happy Housie- Craft Room
I don’t actually have a craft room, but if I did, I would hire Krista from The Happy Housie to recreate exactly what she did here. This is the most amazing craft room I have ever seen! It is so bright and cheery and full of happy colors. I cannot get over how organized everything is (and I love me some organization).
#5 Lisa Canning- Laundry Room
You have got to see where this laundry room started… humble beginnings. Lisa at Lisa Canning is not only 9 months pregnant with her fifth child, she turned your typical basement laundry room into an absolute masterpiece in 5 weeks. You really need to see all the pictures of this space because it’s unbelievable!
#6 Paper Daisy Design- Porch and Patio
If this were my porch, I would just sit out here all day and sip lemonade and read a good book… who needs dinner or clean clothes… kids are running naked in the street? No worries, I’m just sipping lemonade on the porch. (Maybe it’s for the best that I don’t have this space.) Leslie from Paper Daisy Design created this tranquil space, and if you click over, you can see her patio as well.
#7 Heathered Nest- Kids Bathroom
I love everything in this bathroom created by Heather at Heathered Nest. She created this amazing bathroom with a vintage travel theme! There are license plates and a medicine cabinet made from an old suitcase. A pocket door was added. Incredible! You have got to see everything in this bathroom!
#8 A Prudent Life- Garage
Have you EVER seen a garage this beautiful? Wanna take a swim in her floor? You actually can’t, but doesn’t it look like you should be able to? Melissa from A Prudent Life completely transformed her garage from a typical garage where all things accumulate, to this amazing space. Seriously, don’t you just want to touch those floors? (P.S While you’re over visiting Melissa’s garage, you really need to see her pantry she did for a previous One Room Challenge.)
#9 Make Them Wonder- Double Bathrooms
This transformation gets 2 pictures because Dana at Make Them Wonder did TWO bathrooms. She admits that they took 12 weeks instead of 6, but really that’s just a One Room Challenge for each bathroom. One of these bathrooms started out completely covered in mirrors. The transformations for both are incredible!
#10 Around the Watts House- Office
Is this office not gorgeous? I don’t think I’d get any work done in here because 1.) I wouldn’t want to mess anything up, and 2.) I would just be admiring the amazingness (yep, that’s a word… at least in my vocabulary). You’ll have to check out what Iris from Around the Watts House did with her husband’s collection of “Alice in Wonderland” books.
#11 House Updated- Dining Room
I just love all the bright colors incorporated into this dining room created by Brit from House Updated. I obviously can’t capture everything in this dining room, so you’ll have to click over to see the doors she painted black (a real statement in the room) and she has this fabulous dinner bell that I’d love to
steal from her buy for myself.
#12 The Pink Tumbleweed- Bathroom
This rustic bathroom by Alison at The Pink Tumbleweed is FULL of character. She used old ammunition boxes to create the mirror and a belt as a curtain tie. She has incorporated old, rusty items to create one amazing bathroom.
Thanks for sticking with me through all my favorites! Weren’t they awesome? If you have been following the One Room Challenge, I’d love to hear your favorite(s)- leave them in the comments.
