A 1920s Victorian Home Gets a Speakeasy Vibe

Newlyweds Jason and Kati have a special place in their hearts for West End Salvage. With help from shop owner Don Short, the couple recently got married in the shop and held their wedding reception on the first floor. Now that they're ready to upgrade the family room in their 1920s Victorian home, there's no one else they trust. Following the couple's lead of wanting a hotel lobby feel with a speakeasy vibe, designer Hal Davis comes up with a Roaring '20s plan. Hal gets the nod to paint the walls a peacock blue, along with red and gold accents, but there's hesitation when he pitches his idea for painting the ceiling and woodwork black. Playing up the speakeasy theme, they pick out a 1920s Art Deco bar which has sentimental value to Kati. Kati and her bridemaids used the bar as a staging area on her wedding day. The West End team rework the bar, customizing the lighting features and shortening it to fit into the family room. The biggest challenge the team runs into is the fireplace. Since the tile is original and is in great shape, they don't want to mess with it, but the orange tone doesn't work with the new color scheme. To minimize the color, Hal designs a stylish Art Deco grate to cover the front of the fireplace. Searching for the perfect side table, Hal and Don pick up a 1920s operating table from one of their most valued pickers. After getting a gold foil treament, this table fits perfectly into the design plan. In between juggling all these projects, Don lays a guilt trip on his team. He threatens to get rid of the oldest piece of inventory they have in the shop, a vintage mint green stove. The stove has been around so long that the guys have nicknamed her "Bessie/" Inspired to give her a repurposed life, the guys convert her into a fully functioning desk.
