Season 5, Episode 2

Three Cramped Rooms, Two Moms, and One Frankentable Make a Multipurpose Mega Den

Karri and Sandy have a son, Bennett, and their names on an adoption wait list. But their home is too cramped for family fun! Anitra and the team blow open multiple walls to create a large all-purpose space that combines full-family entertainment and dining areas all in one seriously swanky space. Anitra gets the homeowners involved in unprecedented ways, inviting them antique shopping and then giving them an entire piece of the build to do on their own refurbishing an heirloom desk. Joey takes a table originally built by Kerri and makes it the centerpiece of the dining space by adding pull-out extensions to accommodate extra guests. Sandy, the non-DIYer, aids in the building of the Mega Den's biggest item, a built-in reading nook with secret storage underneath. And Anitra goes off the wall with a chandelier made of driftwood, an entertainment center built from mismatched pieces of furniture, and her wackiest idea yet, an accent table cobbled together entirely from leftover parts that she calls the Frankentable. Far from a monstrosity, it's the most eye-catching thing in a free-flowing space that captures the family's personality and gives them room to expand in style.

Front Door Turned Coffee Table

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.
