DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, hosted by "Contractor to the Stars" Stephen Fanuka, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most amazing spaces and construction of Manhattan's high-end luxury homes. This hallway chest was transformed into a piece of graffiti art complimenting the black and white striped mirror above.
Million Dollar Contractor, Stephen Fanuka was brought in to restore this apartment to its prewar glory, and the crown jewel was to be an oak-paneled dining room. The Fanuka team selected individual quarter-sawn oak panels for the highly-figured grain pattern she desired. They also had custom solid wood moldings cut to replicate prewar details and even wood species. Even the staining of the wood was laborious, but in the end well worth it for the room is warm and honey-toned. Finally added was a vintage fireplace from an architectural salvage company.
The living room, formerly the master bedroom, underwent a dramatic transformation thanks to Stephen Fanuka and his crew. A beautiful antique wooden bookcase was relocated to this room, as well as a new window on the northwest wall as seen here on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.
