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.

An old door finds new life as a coffee table. The rustic finish is perfect for a family room -- you can put your feet up, spill soda on it, not use your coaster – it doesn’t matter – it'll all add to the natural, rich patina.
