Challenge No. 3: The Bedrooms and Bathrooms

After staying at or under budget for the first two challenges -- the living rooms and the kitchens -- the brothers finally managed to bust their piggy banks in this bedroom and bathroom challenge. Was it worth it? Click through to see the incredible designs in the sleeping quarters of their reconfigured double shotgun house. 

BEFORE: Drew's Guest Bedroom

The side of Drew's quad-sided fireplace facing the guest bedroom was badly damaged and beyond repair. How does Drew manage to work it into his design? 

AFTER: Drew's Guest Bedroom

After making the damaged fireplace structurally sound, Drew refinished it with a chevron patterned tile with an almost faux wood aesthetic that carries his rustically modern theme into the guest bedroom.

AFTER: Drew's Guest Bedroom

Twin beds in the guest bedroom appeal to families looking to maximize use of their space. 

AFTER: Drew's Guest Bedroom

A neutral gray color palette on the walls gives room for the deep tones and rustic finishes in Drew's new guest bedroom. 

AFTER: Drew's Guest Bathroom

A vintage penny round backsplash for the vanity is the perfect detail to offset the classic white subway tile in the guest bathroom shower. 

Drew with the Advantage

After winning last week's kitchen challenge, Drew gets a little help from his brother JD in this crucial, tie-breaking bedrooms challenge. 

AFTER: Drew's Master Bedroom

A deep walk-in closet with a barn door to maximize space is just the cherry on top of this bedroom oasis in Drew's side of the shotgun.

AFTER: Drew's Master Bedroom

Using reclaimed wood from Jonathan's side of the house, Drew created an accent wall that stretches up and over the ceiling for a canopy effect. 

AFTER: Drew's Master Bedroom

New windows and bright whites throughout let the new flooring and wood accents steal the show in the master bedroom.

AFTER: Drew's Master Bedroom

The devil is in the details, like these accents and character pieces in Drew's new master bedroom.

AFTER: Drew's Master Bathroom

Handcrafted from a hickory tree, the custom, live edge countertop for the master bathroom vanity is a winner in and of itself. 

AFTER: Drew's Master Bathroom

A tiled accent wall in the master bathroom shower stretches all the way up to the 9-foot ceiling for an eye-popping detail.

BEFORE: Jonathan's Guest Bedroom

Jonathan also had a fireplace in his guest bedroom, though in much better shape than Drew's. How will he revitalize it in his space? 

AFTER: Jonathan's Guest Bedroom

Painting the repaired fireplace white lets it match the new decor without losing its rustic flare. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Guest Bedroom

The gold patterned wallpapered ceiling was a design risk that paid off in the final product of Jonathan's new guest bedroom. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Guest Bedroom

See that door? The reconfiguration of the houses' layouts means there's an exterior door in the guest bedroom, which could be awkward but somehow works in the new space. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Guest Bedroom

A yellow color palette with neutrals and gold accents set Jonathan's bright guest room apart from the rest of his shotgun. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Guest Bathroom

A classic hexagon floor tile pairs elegantly with a navy patterned wallpaper in the guest bathroom. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Guest Bathroom

Who can resist a pop of yellow against a blue and white bathroom background? 

AFTER: Jonathan's Master Bedroom

Go bold or go home! Jonathan continues the dark trim from throughout the house into the master bedroom with a tin tile wainscoting. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Master Bedroom

Did we mention the green velvet sofa? Talk about bold and beautiful. 

AFTER: Jonathan's Master Bedroom

Owl accents on the nightstand bring a bit of whimsy to Jonathan's bold but cozy sleeping oasis.

AFTER: Jonathan's Master Bedroom

Fresh flowers on a mirrored accent table are always a welcomed finishing touch in a bedroom.

AFTER: Jonathan's Master Bathroom

Oil-rubbed bronze finishes against a green wall and carrara marble countertop shout southern, New Orleans elegance.

The Judges: Erin and Ben Napier

The hosts of HGTV's Home Town are regular visitors of New Orleans, a few hours from their native Laurel, Miss., and are ready to crown a winner. Who will it be? 

WINNER: Jonathan!

Though they fell in love with Drew's large subway tile in the bathroom and use of reclaimed wood in the master bedroom, Jonathan's tin tile wainscoting and abundant use of green, Erin's favorite color, throughout sealed the deal.
