Season 4, Episode 2

Life's Too Short to Have a Crummy Rec Room

Dad tried to finish the downstairs rec room, but closed up all the space in boring drywall. Anitra and the team blow out the walls and bring in the custom for this active family. By building open boxes and mounting them on hidden brackets, the ugly support posts in the middle of the room become a room divider centerpiece that doubles as display shelves. Even the wood itself makes a statement after getting blowtorched to accentuate the wood grain. A wall full of odd angles is turned into monster storage space, where a new TV hides behind a geometric facade that can be closed off completely for a sleek look. A gorgeous built-from-scratch wine cabinet holds 300+ bottles and is recessed into the wall to take up zero floor space. The couple's two young children get a double-decker playloft, making fun sense of another awkward recess in the walls. Anitra gets funky with an elegant (really!) chandelier made from bicycle parts? rehabs an old dresser into a writing desk with character to spare? and turns a fake-antique table into a true-blue conversation piece in this Mega Den with something special for every member of the family.
