Transform a Study

One family has a husband with a littered study. With a little help, the family trades in the mess for a neatly arrayed space. Learn how to transform a cluttered study into an organized work place.

Mark Sluder's passion for collectibles, whether it be die cast cars or hats, has caused his home office to become his own personal man cave. His wife, Laurie, has designated the room his but isn't happy with the growing clutter of artwork, cars, military gear. Mark's a Renaissance man who likes to use his office to paint, work and sort through his memorabilia, but there's no organization and barely any room to move around. So Karl shows up with a creative plan for both storage and display.
