Season 2, Episode 3

Date Night in the Basement

Constantin and Christina have a supersized basement family room, but no ideas on how to use the space. Anitra and the Mega Dens team will give the couple their own personal entertainment zone. Highlights include a giant TV for private movie screenings, platform seating around a coffee table repurposed from antique doors, a bar/armoire hybrid that acts as a concession stand for grown-up refreshments, a beautiful accent wall made of strips of scrap lumber, a mini stage that recalls Christina's singer/songwriter past, and custom storage that gives Constantin a place to display souvenirs from his career in pro football.

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.

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.

A Buffet of Flowers

Mega Dens invades a 1920s bungalow to give one family some room to sprawl out. Blowing through an entry hallway to make it part of the expanded living room is a start but there's a mess to deal with,including old crumbling plaster, an unsafe dual-sided fireplace and animal skeletons in the walls. Anitra and the guys shore up the structural issues and trick the place out with custom furniture, like an antique sofa reupholstered with colorful saris, a hutch painted bright blue and cut in half to become two units, a hand-waxed desktop and wall shelving made from live-edge planks of tree with the bark still intact. Sleek tile graces the fireplaces, repurposed mantles go up, and one-of-a-kind artwork is placed on top to finish this Mega Den in style. In addition, Anitra gains a new admirer when she grants the gaming system wish of a love-struck eight-year-old boy.

Life's Too Short to Have a Crummy Rec Room

Dad tried to finish the downstairs rec room, but closed up all the space in boring drywall. Anitra and the team blow out the walls and bring in the custom for this active family. By building open boxes and mounting them on hidden brackets, the ugly support posts in the middle of the room become a room divider centerpiece that doubles as display shelves. Even the wood itself makes a statement after getting blowtorched to accentuate the wood grain. A wall full of odd angles is turned into monster storage space, where a new TV hides behind a geometric facade that can be closed off completely for a sleek look. A gorgeous built-from-scratch wine cabinet holds 300+ bottles and is recessed into the wall to take up zero floor space. The couple's two young children get a double-decker playloft, making fun sense of another awkward recess in the walls. Anitra gets funky with an elegant (really!) chandelier made from bicycle parts? rehabs an old dresser into a writing desk with character to spare? and turns a fake-antique table into a true-blue conversation piece in this Mega Den with something special for every member of the family.

The Ultimate Play Tent

Carla took shop class in middle school, but hasn't built a thing since. Now she and husband James will work alongside the Mega Dens crew to give their unused playroom some personality. An entertainment center, a bar, and bookcases with an easy-to-do Bohemian vibe are just a few of the builds this cute couple gets busy on. Their young daughters create an artistic masterpiece with a cool coloring book technique, and Anitra infuses the space with style that includes intricate wall stripes, inexpensive molding ideas, and a game table with real gold in the finish! A unique banister system with Plexiglas and decorative tree branches will give this rec room some much-needed pizzazz right at the entryway... but it's the girls' secret playroom, decked out in plush textures and flowing fabrics, that makes the biggest splash with the whole family when they finally see the end result.

Nights in Red Vinyl

The Jones Family has a huge rec room- with two TVs! But no one ever uses the place. Michelle calls it 'creepy,' her son Bryce says it's 'no fun,' and Tim doesn't know how to change their minds. But Anitra does! Her plan will turn up the swank factor to 11 in a family-friendly hangout zone that will call to mind a luxe hotel lobby. The floors are tiled in an elegant herringbone pattern, and the weirdly-textured walls get a more modern touch with chocolate-colored architectural finish. Tim and Michelle learn how to wrap long planks in red vinyl to clad two of the walls for a look inspired by retro airline lounges. To that end, a custom bar is created for adult entertainment, and the brick fireplace gets a facelift with sleek tile. But the room's centerpiece is an entertainment center so crazy, it actually came to Anitra in a dream. The crew spends most of the week figuring out how to countersink a live-edge slab of box elder wood into a another slab of wood- like a backward jigsaw puzzle- but the end result is worth all the trouble when these Joneses wind up with a sophisticated and fun Mega Den that will have everyone they know dying to keep up with them.

A Hidey Hole, a Wine Hammock, and a Pink Floor: Welcome to the Love Den

Dave and Orran have adopted twin sons, so turning their just-finished basement into usable space has been put on hold. Anitra and her team come to the rescue with a swanky hangout that recalls the dads' world-traveling past and offers their new family room to grow. The awkward space under the stairs becomes a killer wine cellar with a Mega Den-original wine hammock system that allows bottles to be displayed and cradled by leftover fabric. For the concrete floor, Anitra talks the crew into trying pink stain for the first time ever, with mind-blowing results. Both homeowners get in on the build, too. Orran helps construct a custom bar, while Dave cranks out a wall's worth of built-in bookcases. But the bookcase also houses a top-secret surprise, a clever reading nook that converts to a guest room when company comes! Designer details, custom creations, and high-tech toys all combine to create one of the smokingest Mega Dens the team has ever attempted!

A Mega Tale from the Crypt

Anitra gives a family of Halloween fanatics a year-round fright fest with a Mega Den that recreates haunted New Orleans. First, they hide the monster HVAC units in a mausoleum so creepy it belongs on a horror movie set. Next up, a spooktacular bar custom-crafted to resemble an old church confessional, with gothic details galore. It still needs to be a family fun space, but how do you make high-tech toys blend in with a thrills-and-chills theme? Build your own coffin: a clever entertainment center made from plywood, molding, and simple hardware where hidden pull-out storage drawers bury the bling. But Anitra may have finally crossed over to the other side with her altogether spooky idea for a spirit board coffee table. When unexplained things start happening during the build, a medium visits the jobsite and reveals that the home actually has a haunted history that brings the ghosts-in-the-graveyard spirit to life in a whole new way. The result is a Mega Den to die for... one that's more authentic to its theme than any the team has ever built.

What's More Mega Than a Tilt-a-Whirl? A Mega Den That Solves All Your Family's Space Issues

The Goulds' rec room has become a catch-all that no one uses. Anitra's team plans to give Dad his home office, their young daughters a play area, the whole family a hangout zone, and Mom the flexibility to accommodate overnight guests all in the same space! But things get off to a funky start when black mold is discovered lurking behind the walls. After remediation, the entire build is behind schedule, and everyone needs to pitch in. Ladd helps on a kids' playloft that doubles as a bunk bed, and Cindy lends a hand on a banquette bench that transforms into a full-size guest bed. Old beams become a new multipurpose table, and a pair of secondhand nightstands are reinvented as a killer media console to anchor the family fun zone. Nothing about this new Mega Den is easy, except for the hundreds of ways the Goulds will be able to use it every single day.
