Hide CaptionShow CaptionA modern dining area is adorned with original paintings.
Summer designs a sleek dining solution by creating a solid birch table and benches using galvanized steel pipes for legs. She adds cushions to the benches for comfort.

Lee steps up the style on new, birch shelves by fitting them with fluorescent light fixtures and frames made of quarter-inch birch. The frames are spray-painted silver and slide over each shelf to accent the new media center and eating area.
