Sci-Fi Living and Dining Room

Using vintage and traditional tones and themes, host Joan Steffend and designer Barbara Sculati add flair and character to a single man’s living room and dining area. Take a look at these before-and-after shots to see how they did it.

  • Dining Room, Before
  • Living Room, Before
  • Floor-length silk curtains are enhanced with embossed paper cornices.
  • The living room is painted brick red. A side chair and the existing sofa are updated with white slipcovers.
  • The back of the front door is given a faux wood look with stain and a special graining tool. The stain is brushed on then the tool is dragged through it to create the faux grain.
  • A garage-sale dining set is transformed with spray paint and new chair covers made out of more painted velvet fabric.
  • A map is decoupaged onto the top of a garage-sale desk to cover the scratches. © 2010 Scripps Networks, L.L.C. All rights reserved
