Design school student Shivani Gupta wants to define these homeowners' space and break it into separate areas — one for grown-ups and one for kids. She transforms the space by adding built-ins, a new wall color, reupholstering the current furniture and creating a fun kid rug. In the end, she makes this family room the TV/living/kids' room it needs to be in just two days and with $2,000.
Before: The homeowners say their family room needs to be designed and defined, but think an interior designer would cost a lot of money so they entrust the task to a student designer.
