Episode Summary

One Room Living
See how a single room can be transformed into a multitude of separate living environments. Christopher uses the telestrator to illustrate how a number of designers have tackled the problems of one room living, then points out all the wasted space in the "before" studio room he will redo. Explaining how the bed can be used to divide the room, he constructs a center island bedroom with a plywood platform and shelving unit, a core door headboard/wall, and a luan and pine footboard. Christopher also shows how to make a circular opening in the headboard and a hidden magazine rack. Decorative artist Joe Fenzel demonstrates how to achieve a faux finish linen look for walls with texture paste, sand, glaze and a rag. Touring the finished room, Christopher defines the separate areas he created (living room, work station, vanity, kitchen, and bedroom) and he describes the functional furnishings he chose. He also discusses how monochromatic colors and a variety of decorative additions help make the space flow. To prove that you don't need a kitchen to cook, Christopher prepares an easy pasta and vegetable dish in a wok on two rolling carts.moreless
