Before

Before the renovation, the house looked worned and tired. The yard needed attention and the driveway hadn't been paved in decades.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After

The renovated exterior features new landscaping and hardscaping, and a front porch that is warm and welcoming. The newly paved driveway not only provides a place to park, but a place for the kids to shoot hoops and play.

Before: Uninviting

Before Nicole and LeBron arrived, the front porch was weathered and the railing was wobbly and unsafe.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: A Welcoming Site

A fresh coat of paint on the door, steps and floor add charm to the porch. New railing and posts help support the space and keep it safe.

Backyard Before

This yard was not exactly the ideal place for kids to play.

After: All the Neighbor Kids Will Come

The new white picket fence, backyard seating area and basketball court make this the place where kids and adults can relax and have fun.

Table and Patio

A covered dining table on the new brick patio makes a perfect spot for family gatherings and entertaining guests.

Before: Living Room

This empty living room is a sad sight from the icky-looking carpet all the way up to the warped ceiling.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: Puts the Living in Room

Today the renovated living room features new windows that allow more light into the room. New furniture, family photos and a bright and cheery colol palette put the "living" back in this room.

Photo By: Matthew Allen/AP Images ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Before: Living Room

The corner of the living room was looking rough. Nicole had a bright vision for this underwhelming space and the finished product could not have turned out better.

After: Warm and Inviting

Now this room is filled with plush leather furniture, a new pattern rug, family portraits and contemporary lighting.

Before: Stairwell

The warped stairs look like a safety hazard as well as an eyesore.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: Stairs

The stairs have been refinished and treated with newly painted railing and banister. The antique mirror, new window treatments and furnishings add tons of charm.

Before: Dining Room

The living room connects to the dining room through this space. Back when the home was built, this entryway was probably one of the home's best features.

After: Seamless and Flowing

A refreshed entry, new flooring and furniture make the entry seamless and inviting.

Photo By: Matthew Allen/AP Images ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Before: Dining Room

The peeling wallpaper and dingy carpet made this dining room completely unappetizing.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: Table and Curtains

The family will enjoy everyday dinners and holiday meals around this large table for years to come. New windows let the light flow and help curtail energy costs. An antique dresser provides serving space, storage and a lot of style.

Dining Room Credenza

Family portraits and photos taken during the renovation hang on the wall above the antique dresser in the dining room.

Before: Kitchen

Who would even want to put food in those cabinets?

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: Amazing

It's hard to believe this is the same space. The family is sure to cook up a lot of happy memories preparing meals together in their new kitchen.

Before: Bathroom

It's large; that's about the only positive thing you can say about this room.

Before: Mom's Bedroom

Melanie's attic bedroom looked more like a dungeon than a place to rest.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: A Retreat for Mom

This attic is barely recognizable now. Refinished floors and all new furniture set in a serene color palette provide a relaxing place to chill out and snooze.

Photo By: Jason Miller/ AP Images ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved

After: Attic Bedroom

White furniture and light woods uncomplicate the space and keep it bright and cheerful. On the practical side, a new reinforced handrail was added to the stairwell.

Photo By: Matthew Allen/AP Images ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Before: Mariah's Room

The worn wallpaper, dingy carpet and mismatched window treatment do nothing to hightlight what could be a bright and sunny alcove.

Photo By: Lauren Noess ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

After: Young Again

Mariah's new room is perfect for any young girl. Bright colors, new furniture, refinished floors and a pretty crystal chandelier make the room sparkle.

Photo By: Matthew Allen/AP Images ©2014, DIY Network/Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Before: Xavier's Room

The mattress had no frame, the ceiling fan and light did not work, and the wallpaper was barely on the wall.

After: Handsome

Xavier's new room has a classic look that he'll feel comfortable in for years to come.

Before: Zeke's Room

The waves in the carpet cause a dangerous trip hazard and the lime-green wall color left a sour taste.

After: Red, Blue, and Basketball

Now the space is sweet and cheerful.

Despite the extra cost, new tile is blended with old to keep the original, unique look of the house. Once the roof is water tight, two upstairs bedrooms are ready to be restored.

Pool Room Refresher

For Nicole's next project, it's gonna be sink or swim! The indoor pool that Nicole's grandfather built by hand is getting a much-needed refresher. First up, the safety and mechanical systems of the pool need to be overhauled to meet modern standards. The beautiful cedar ceiling and aquamarine walls are original so there is no way Nicole will change those, they just need a good wash and some new paint. In the biggest design challenge of the entire project, Nicole boldly replaces the original doors, which had been ruined with age, with giant glass garage doors to let in light and views of the surrounding countryside.

Nicole sees opportunity for a beautiful bathroom, and an updated, retro family room that pays homage to her Grandfather's original plans. It wouldn't be Nicole if some gorgeous wood, and not-so-gorgeous hunting themed paneling, is lovingly re purposed to update the room into a modern yet rustic haven.
