After: A Festive Living RoomFirst, designer Shayne Barsness tackles the living/dining room. As an extra gift, outside the $500 budget, the family receives new carpeting, new sofa and a new chair for the living room. For a more masculine, clean look, the walls are painted khaki and the trim around the windows and doors are painted white. A second-hand TV stand, shelf, end table and coffee table are all painted semi-gloss black for a cohesive look.
