Vern doing a master bedroom for newlyweds, Frank doing a girl’s room…how delightful!!
Frank got going and couldn’t seem to stop. I think they gave up painting the other two walls due to time (are you listening, Kia?) Then Ty had to jump in with that monkey desk (I howled when the mom thought it was a bar) and completely threw off the look of the room. I agreed with Paige…the walls were nice with the graffitti, and the monkey desk was cute. But not together in the same room.
I may be biased against the monkey desk (the desk part looked fairly shallow too, not deep enough for a child to do homework with books and paper spread out) because of those horrid little banging monkey toys with the cymbals and the grins. They freak me out. Still, it was nicely executed. My 10 year old daughter loved the room, so maybe it does appeal to a child. The girl Ryanne seemed to like it. What was up though with the guy blurting out, “Well, doing a kid’s room is the closest we’ll get to having children”? He seemed bitter about that, but isn’t that something you explore with a potential spouse before marriage? He didn’t seem real thrilled to be there at the start.
I can’t believe they dragged the birds over, and had to go to a hotel because the heat wasn’t working. Were they in a condo complex or something?
Vern…I loved the colors, and the maple on the walls, but I wasn’t crazy about the cable lights with the grey metal box on the ceiling. The entertainment unit was beautiful. I can’t believe Ty screwed up on the dimensions of the bed…they never really explained how he fixed it. How can you be married and not have a bed? Poor college students living six to a house I can understand, but if they can afford a condo, surely they could afford a bed.
Poor Frank seemed so upset Paige and the HO were criticizing his monkey desk, and then the bird poops on his head. The doll cabinet was cute, but I thought the face should have been further forward on the top.
Overall, it was okay, the HOs seemed happy, but I’ve seen both Frank and Vern do better work.
