Season 2, Episode 5

All Aboard for a Mega Den

The family room at David and Rebecca's house has become the end of the line for their kids' toys, leaving them no space to relax. Anitra and the Mega Dens crew will take it outside, transforming an underused screen porch into a stylish room they can use year-round, with new windows and doors, heating and air and a total redo of the exterior landscape. For the organizational-obsessed parents, they'll design plenty of built-in storage. For the train-obsessed little one, they'll design a choo-choo playhouse. And they'll give the room some long-overdue style by exposing the gorgeous brick at the fireplace.

Buddha Head and Purple Heart

A multi-cultural family breathes life into their blank-slate rec room with help from Anitra and the Mega Dens team. A narrow doorway separating two unused spaces is blown open to create on large family-friendly zone with two distinct personalities: a swanky media room with seating for grown-up get-togethers and a fun game room with shuffleboard and a kids' play loft with indoor slide. Joey uses super-rare Purple Heart wood to build the most striking entertainment center in Mega Dens history and then tops it off with the largest TV the team has ever used. There's also a heavy rustic-and-recycled vibe, with massive walnut timbers that are turned into a coffee table and a ceiling lamp made with just 300 yards of jute twine and glue. Add a custom wall mural featuring an eight-foot-tall Buddha head and Chinese lettering added by the homeowner and this Mega Den will blow everyone away.

Holy Stripes of Happiness

A family with three young children looks to spread out into their barely-finished basement, but they have no idea how. Anitra and the boys put them to work on a play loft for the kids and a custom media center that'll make family movie night shine. The grown-up half of the Mega Den comes to life with a swanky bar featuring repurposed nautical hardware, stylish bookcases and storage solutions, and sliding barn doors made from bargain-rack hollow-core doors. On the other side, the kids get a surprise combination arts-and-crafts studio and playroom, decked out in wild paint stripes running around the walls. Anitra works with some local salvage artists to custom-create a couple of killer tables from antique metalwork... and builds her own funky storage unit out of cheap garage shelving. Six-year-old Joey teams up with big Joey for some hands-on carpentry, and four-year-old Macey Jane learns the ancient Japanese art of suminagashi as they leave their own marks on the Mega Den. When it's all said and done, there's something here for everyone... in a family-friendly space no one will want to leave.

Teal Table and Pink Chairs

Tac and Dana's living room-and-dining-room combo was designed for entertaining, but the cold decor is a party crasher. The Mega Dens crew constructs a massive built in with sliding bookshelf units to elegantly hide a rocking media center and creates more square footage in the dining area by building a banquette seat with clever storage underneath. The couple falls in love all over again with the first piece of furniture they ever bought when Anitra strips it down and repaints it bright teal. A new dining table is built from 300-year-old timbers, and the chairs are given a hot pink coat, much to Tac's dismay. The kids use squirt guns to whip up a work of art, and the team uses flexible rubber molding to dress up a dull ceiling. The end result is a space that's still classy enough to be the living room, but fun and inviting enough to now live up to the name.

Rock 'n' Rustic Living Room

The Stocke men have grown used to their bachelor pad lifestyle, and their living room shows it. The Mega Dens team clears out the clutter... and their unused dining room right along with it! A new media center is served up instead, where the whole family can hang out and cozy up with state of the art electronics. In the living room, a dated stone fireplace gets rocked to the ground... and slick, shiny steel makes a heavy metal statement in its place. Big, bad built-ins add much needed storage, bamboo flooring keeps it all mess-free, and a custom bar and wine cabinet anchor the grow-up entertainment zone for Rob and fiance Christy. There are problems along the way, from tile that won't stick to the walls, and built-to-fit cabinets that... well, don't. But Anitra and the gang power through and find solutions, while showcasing easy ideas for DIYing everything from drapes to high-end artwork, all with simple materials and techniques. It all comes together in the end for a rock 'n' rustic Mega Den that's ready for full-family fun.

Beige Box Breakout

A three-generation extended family helps renovate their shared living room to include a grown-up wine bar, a fireplace with porcelain tiles that use hi-definition computer imagery to mimic natural stone, and kid-friendly storage cleverly hidden inside a train boxcar. After a stinky sump pump issue is resolved, single mom Barbara puts her DIY skills to the test and also conquers her fear of color with a refinished coffee table drenched in hot pink. The Mega Dens crew reuses, recycles, and repurposes by rocking out a custom entertainment center built from secondhand nightstands and turning a collection of antique doors into a one-of-a-kind wine bar. The end result is a gorgeous and fun multi-purpose space with something for every member of the family.

Crouching Table Hidden Flatscreen

With their third child on the way, Reid and Adrienne are quickly outgrowing their cramped older home, where the dining room and living room are swapped. Anitra and her team set things straight by providing good flow from room to room and dramatically modernizing the place. The living room gets a recessed TV that's hidden behind a mirror when it's turned off, an electric fireplace that changes colors with LED lighting, and a "built-in" camouflage for the unsightly laundry room door. A hand-crafted table made from rare olivewood and an antique feed trough becomes the dining room centerpiece, along with hidden storage and a kegerator for Dad. All of that, plus big-time upgrades in the kitchen make this a Mega Den that will keep on growing right along with this growing family.

A Suburban Family Gets Their Big-City Edge Back with a Loft-Like Mega Den

Steve and Heidi Hausler used to live the big-city lifestyle in an intown loft, but moving to the suburbs and having a family has dulled their metropolitan edge. Anitra and the Mega Dens team will help them get their groove back in a new space loaded with loft-like details. The carpet comes up to expose the concrete floor but Anitra wants to make the rest of the cul-de-sac green with envy by staining the slab a sick shade of green that screams industrial chic, then stenciling on subtle accents that call to mind an old over-dyed carpet. Using the family's collection of mismatched dressers and cabinets and then adding a few secondhand store finds, she plans a furniture collage for an unused nook that will become wicked wine storage. Steve and Heidi get busy with pieces of a smoking hot ceiling treatment- a combination of artificially-aged wood and sleek metal beams that create a cool coffered look. Custom pieces complete the vibe, including a walk-up bar with a one-of-a-kind exotic wood top, repurposed school lockers that get a hot new hue, a storage bench upholstered with funky floor rugs, and a century-old Asian antique that has to be completely dismantled before being resurrected as a sweet entertainment center that's the perfect blend of old-school cool and big-city bad.

Your Room's Underwear is Showing, but a Mega Den Will Dress You Up in Style

The Mehlbergers' rec room is guilty of Anitra's Number One design faux pas: exposed TV wires and cables everywhere! That's just the jump-off point for a total redesign that will bring swanky style to this forgotten room in their house. Anitra and the Mega Dens team construct an ambitious walnut entertainment center, with matching bookshelves, that will be recessed into the wall cleverly hiding all cables and wires in an accessible hallway behind. Lauren is put in charge of stripping away old layers of brown paint from an antique biscuit-making cabinet once owned by her grandmother only to have Anitra repurpose it as the workcenter of a brand new craft and sewing station hidden away in an unused closet. Steve rolls up his sleeves and helps build his new bar, getting hands-on with both the framing and the decorative finish detail. An intricate door panel becomes the front of the bar, with back bar storage and tall cabinets to match. The stone fireplace gets a new mantel, a chunk of live-edge tree pulled straight from Joey's own yard! And Anitra has a bright idea for reusing a collection of old crystal decanters that were collecting dust, she lops off the bottoms and turns them into hanging light pendants for over the bar! Add in a secret hideaway spot for the Mehlberger boys to hang out, read, and draw on the walls and this Mega Den easily turns the room no one ever used into the space no one will ever want to leave.

A Couple with a Fear of Color and Surprises Gets a New Basement with Bunk Beds and Laundry Room

A couple with three young children hopes to make their unfinished basement a usable part of the their home, but are out of ideas. Anitra and the gang whip up a plan for a family-friendly media center complete with built-in bunk beds for the little ones, along with a dedicated and stylish laundry room for this busy mom. Sparks fly when one homeowner reveals that she hates surprises and is afraid of color, two elements that are crucial to every Mega Den. The crew brings in vibrant color in the form of a custom-created piece of artwork that reflects the family's unique personality, and cutting-edge materials like vinyl flooring, actual river birch trees, and sheet metal that gets welded and rapid-rusted to become wall cladding. The homeowners remain skeptical right up to the bitter end of this tense project.
