Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis takes on another design project while waiting for the Minnehaha house to sell. This time it's her client Ellen's colorful sea-themed bathroom that needs fixing. To match the 1920s style of the rest of the house, she has to bring it down to the studs ? everything but the door must go.
Nicole teams with basketball superstar LeBron James to renovate a special family's house in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. They tackle the dingy dilapidated kitchen first. Unfortunately, nothing original is left in this kitchen-so it's up to Nicole to come up with a design using new solid wood cabinets and stone countertops that will blend in with the original character of this home. Nicole's family joins Lebron's family and foundation members to get this house done in just one week.
Nicole continues work on the Akron, Ohio, project with Lebron James. It's time to tackle the rest of the first floor, the living room and dining room. Once the nasty old carpet is removed to reveal beautiful old pine floors, Nicole can start to see her vision for a comfortable, functional and very stylish living space. It's all about making this dilapidated space feel grand once again. Even while busy in Akron, Nicole never stops salvaging & designs these spaces around new photos of the family using old windows saved from a dumpster.
Downstairs is done at the Akron, Ohio house Nicole is rehabbing with LeBron and his foundation and now attention turns to the bathroom. This bathroom is a gut-job but the saving grace for Nicole is a beautiful, old built in cabinet which she and her army of volunteers restore. Leaving her tilers for an hour or two Nicole gets dressed up and heads to a huge stadium event to welcome the basketball superstar back to Akron.
The interior is coming along beautifully and now it's time to give the exterior of the family house in Akron a facelift. LeBron and his kids spar off with Nicole in a duel of diggers to tear out the front steps and regrade the yard. A tricky design challenge makes laying the new path stretch late into the night, but it's all worth it come morning. Lebron helps put up the flag and now the family has a home they can be proud of.
Nicole, LeBron and the LeBron James Family Foundation continue with their project to renovate a needy family's home into a renovated beauty. 11 year old Mariah deserves a room fit for a princess, just not a pink one! And her brothers will no longer share a room and get to pick their own colors for their own rooms. To finish on time LeBron's army of volunteers steps up, the family lends a hand and Nicole puts her personal touch on each room for these special kids. What will they say when they see their rooms?
Hard working mom, Nicole Curtis is on a mission to create a master bedroom for mom Melanie in the final episode of the Lebron James Family Foundation house.

Time to bring the family in, this is a reveal you don't want to miss!
With the Minnehaha house still sitting on the market, Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis decides to put her own house up for sale hoping that it will sell faster. However, before she can do this, she must first give her garage a much needed makeover and remove asbestos from her basement. Not wanting to spend too much, this interior designer must find low cost solutions to get the job done.

Nicole is back on Campbell Street helping her 85-year-old veteran neighbor, Art, repair his home. The house is suffering from severe water damage so the team seals the leaky roof and patches and repaints the dining room, living room, and bedroom.

With the help of her team and Art's two daughters, Nicole turns an otherwise unsafe home into a relaxing retreat in record time.

Nicole's doing a surprise home renovation for one of her carpenters and his family. Bobby and his wife, Karen, started renovating their house two years ago.

Nicole invites the family over for a five-day staycation at her grandparents' recently restored home. Little do they know that Nicole and her crew will be finishing the renovation they started two years ago.
