Weekend Links: Best of the One Room Challenge Reveals

Happy Mother’s Day weekend everyone!

This week the participants in the One Room Challenge revealed their newly decorated spaces. I mentioned in a Weekend Links post a few weeks ago, that the One Room Challenge is a challenge for designers and bloggers to totally redesign one room in their home over the course of six weeks. There were 20 featured designers who received sponsorships (House Beautiful is the official media sponsor) and several hundred guest participants.

I am always amazed at the incredible things these participants accomplish in such a short time. It is inspiring to those of us who move at a slightly slower pace!

I thought I would share my five favorite reveals with you today, showing before and after photos of the spaces.

1. The Pink Pagoda’s dining room and sitting room reveal:

Isn’t this an incredible transformation? Remember, this was done in just six weeks!! I love the green and white buffalo check chairs in the sitting room.

2. Rambling Renovators living room reveal:

I love all the molding that was added to the walls and the lovely built in window seat  and bookshelves adds so much character.  The space is traditional but fun and cheerful.

3. The Pink Clutch Jack-and-Jill shared boy/girl bathroom:

Those green trellis hand painted walls (above) are fabulous! I also liked the ribbon trim on the bamboo shades–it might have to be my next DIY!

5. Kelly Rogers Interiors a shared girls’ bedroom:

There are so many wonderful reveals that you can view here and here.  I find these before and afters very inspiring, don’t you?
