Jenifer Blake wants the design team to turn her disorganized and dull family room into a functional and attractive space the entire family can enjoy. To start, host Sam Kivett chooses a subtle green wall color and Summer Baltzer searches a thrift store for vintage fabric to create playful kid-size floor pillows. Kivett also varnishes an inexpensive but sturdy unfinished wood dining table and chairs, and then attaches a roll of butcher paper that the Blake children can easily access for art projects. As the team pulls the room together, they add lighting over the new dining table, display the children's artwork on a custom made magnetic board and in shadow boxes, all made by Charles Burbridge. A new toy box and bookcases further organize the space. The Blakes can now live and relax in a clutter-free space done for under $1,000.
