Spring 2015 One Room Challenge Review

If you missed the reveals of the ORC (One Room Challenge) event on Thursday, wow, did you really miss a ton of fabulous projects.  I had a ball redoing my Master Bedroom Closet.  Linda @ Calling It Home organized her Spring ORC  and asked some of her favorite ladies to do a complete makeover in 6 short weeks.  Well the end result was totally amazing and all of their reveals were stunning.  If you missed them you can catch up here.   She always invites the rest of us to join in and over 150 wonderful ladies answered the call.  I am in awe of all the talent and creativity that these ladies have.  I picked just a few that I thought you might like to see.

Kimberly @ Swoon Worthy turned a plain ordinary room into this fabulous office.  I love her playful mix of color, patterns and textures. plus all the amazing diy projects.  I could spend all day in here.  What an inspiring space.

When it was time for a "big girl room", Kirsten @ 6th Street Design created this fabulous room for her daughter.  Check out that art work, is this not any little girls dream?  You have to go see the rest - way too cute.

I had to do a double take when I saw this kitchen.  Brittany @ White Dog Vintage had a really dated kitchen and wanted to redo it.  Well you are not going to believe that she did this for $340.  You have to see the before, this is totally beyond amazing.  Don't you LOVE that floor.

I love this teen boy's bedroom makeover.  Veronica @ The Naked Decorator totally kicked this room up a notch.  You really have to go see how innovative she was, even plywood floors you won't believe.

Angela @ Blue i Style created the most unbelievable space under the stairs for her budding little "star".  What little boy wouldn't be in heaven in this fun space.

A laundry room can be stunning and Sharon @ Pretty Practical Home proved it with this makeover.  A space for folding clothes and baskets for sorting them.  I love that mirror, that was a genius addition, and those stenciled walls.  Amazing.

If you have a builder basic bathroom that is a little boring or worse for the wear, then you have to see this amazing makeover.  Alison @ The Pink Tumbleweed gave this bathroom a makeover you have to go see to believe.  She didn't miss a single detail, even down to the belt tieing the shower curtain back.  Gorgeous.

Mariella @ Splendor in Spanglish took this tiny little corner next to the door of her apartment and turned it into a foyer.  Talk about imagination and inspiration.  Isn't this the neatest little spot!!!  She totally proves style has nothing to do with size.

Thanks again to Linda @ Calling It Home for organizing this fun event.  If you missed out on this one you can join in for the Fall 2015 ORC.  Save the date and start planning your makeover now.  I think my master bathroom needs a facelift, so the planning begins.

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

I am joining the following parties:
