Two new shows, and Ivylad saw his Buckeyes win, so I got the remote!
8p: Frank and Christi in Boston with Amy Wynn (who, by the way, should not be leaning while wearing tank tops.) Frank redoing a living room, Christi redoing a kitchen.
I’m glad Christi didn’t paint over the wallpaper, a la Hildi or Doug. I liked the buff color of the cabinets. How coincidental that the former owner of the house lived next door, was a general contractor and was able to move the security box and cut the back splash to the proper dimensions. Talk about wrong measurements! I wasn’t a fan of the quilt squares, and I don’t know how hard it would be to keep the stainless steel tabletop clean, but I liked the new desk area.
Frank had a very odd designed master bedroom with a nonfunctioning fireplace stuck in the middle. He got into Kountry Mode, although he called it Amish/Colonial, but it wasn’t too overwhelming, especially since the HO has a Mennonite heritage (another coincidence!). He said he was going to do a faux finish on the floor, which looked like bathroom tile, but all he did was throw a rug on the floor. The cabinet for the dresser was nice, but I would have done something to the bare back that faced the sitting area.
9pm: Barry and Edward with Yummy Carter in Buffalo, both redoing family rooms. Barry is new? He seemed very shy, and I thought he was cute, but he sweats more than Frank. And I thought his pants were a little tight, then he goes and splits them. He kept calling it an accident, which made me think he peed in them at first when Paige asked him what happened.
I didn’t like either room very much. That green awning in the “sitting area” was stupid, and I guess it was supposed to be a faux finish on the turquoise wall, but to me it just looked like a crappy paint job. And couldn’t the HOs have cleaned under the couch cushions?
Edward painted his room in Barney purple and hung an entertainment center from the ceiling. I hate it when they hang stuff from the ceilings. It never looks right. The triptych was okay, I guess, but I didn’t really see the astronomy theme until the end.
Still no Vern. Or Gen, for that matter.
