My Home Away From my Castle

Episode DMGD-406H

Mike and Lisa have traveled the world, and now they want to make their home their castle... really! Anitra, her team, and the show's most fanatical homeowners to date use a medieval theme to re-imagine the unused family room, outfitting the bland fireplace with a custom cast mantel, installing faux ceiling beams, creating hand-painted tapestries out of $60 drapes, and using stone and trim to give the walls a regal, high-end look. But this royal family also has a princess who needs her own happily ever after, too. So an unfinished storage room is tricked out with plush carpeting and a custom play castle, complete with a nap nook and a tower slide. For the king and queen of the house, a bar tucked beneath the staircase provides liquid libations without eating up an inch of usable floor space. And the family dog makes a cameo appearance as the inspiration for a piece of artwork that shows who really rules the kingdom around here.
