Winners of the “White” Challenge!!

13

I know I say that each week the projects are better and better, but I think this past week’s WHITE Challenge was my favorite project that we have EVER had!!

Seriously, looking at all of those cozy white projects together in one place was beautiful!!

Here are Stephanie Lynn’s favorites:

52. White Pool House@ The Virginia House

Jillian created such a beautiful inspiring space with this pool house transformation. I love the fact that most of the projects were made using recycled materials and she not only DIY’d the entire space – she created it sticking to an unbelievable budget.

Here are the other top ten in no particular order…..

4. CCC Rose Petal Chandy@ The Country Chic Cottage

I love the way Angie creatively used dollar store rose petals to create this chic chandelier. I could see this finished product glamorizing just about any space – though it looks fabulous in her daughters bedroom too!

18. Faux Grain Sack Chair @ {Primp}

This chair has such character and Michelle did a wonderful job capturing it in the makeover. Her faux grain sack looks like the real deal!

25. Dreamy White Girls Room @ t party – the blog

I adore this transformation from nursery to ‘big girls’ room – simply gorgeous. Becky’s attention to all the little details make this such a classic special space for her little girl to treasure for years to come..

107. Nightstand from Door and Fence @ Pretty Handy Girl

This nightstand is a ingenious way to repurpose an old door and fence. Brittany did a spectacular job on this piece and the hardware adds the perfect finished touches.

22. DIY Pottery Barn Bed @ Twenty Six 2 Life

Kate did a fantastic job on this incredible knock off build. All the ‘do-it-yourself’ work definitely paid off {as well as all her trips to the lumber store}. Looks like a million bucks – only at a fraction of the cost!

31. Paper Flower Jar Lids @ Homework

This is a brilliant way to dress up repurposed jars. The flowers are so beautiful and I would have never guessed Carolyn used paper to create these – Very pretty!

56. Burlap & Doily Luminaries: Rustic meets Romance @ Crafts by Amanda

This is a charming and sweet way Amanda repurposed thrift store doilies; I bet the glowing candlelight is simply gorgeous.

80. Vintage @ White Life

This is one amazing transformation done with such elegance. I love the history behind the piano and adore the courage Buchhandel had to incorporate the piece into her own space. Simply stunning!

94. White/Burlap Slipcover @ La Maison Reid

This is another fantastic thrift store makeover. Nancy did exceptional work on this slipcover and you would never believe this was her first attempt {or that she ‘winged’ it}. The burlap buttons and piping added to the back are the icing on the cake!

106. Wedding Dress Pillow @ Attempting Aloha

I simply adored the idea behind this creation when Charlie posted her first attempt back in fall and I was excited to see her final pillow in the challenge. She has created such a sentimental piece {made from her wedding dress and ‘dad’s shirt’} to pass along to her daughters. I am sure they will treasure it for years to come!
