For the Ultimate Beach House Bunkroom, I'm Going to Carolina in My Mega Den

The 150-year-old beach house in Atlantic, North Carolina has seen a number of additions over the generations, but nothing like its very first Mega Den! Anitra and the crew join forces with DIY Network's Chris Grundy to give the top floor of the 2013 Blog Cabin some Mega Den moxie, including a built-from-scratch sliding barn door to close off the bunkroom in rustic style. The team hand-picks several pieces of furniture original to the home and transforms them into an authentically cool bar with a phenomenal finish. As a top for the handmade entertainment center, Anitra takes a brand new sheet of shiny zinc? and throws it into the ocean for a one-of-a-kind saltwater-distressed effect. As for custom artwork, Grundy mans up as a human target, bravely holding a blank canvas that Anitra, Mikey, and Joey catapult painted projectiles at with a giant slingshot. It may sound crazy, but DIY voters have final say on many of the room's touches, thanks to their online votes on everything from the color palette to a decorative inlay on the hardwood flooring to the window blinds. And of course, the Scialabbas add their usual bit of cool carpentry with a reclaimed wood desk and ingenious Murphy bunk beds that fold into the wall when not in use. The result is a singularly-sensational space that's part bunkroom, part media loft, part party zone? and all Mega Den.
