Jen and Alon make their plea to Lara and her design team to transform their completely empty and forgotten living room. They want a warm, sophisticated space to enjoy with their three young daughters. Lara Spencer (Designer/Flea Market expert and Good Morning America Co-Anchor) and her amazing design team take on the challenge! With a shopping budget of fifteen hundred dollars, Lara finds great one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Using a little elbow grease and a lot of love, Lara and her team transform and customize the second hand treasures into works of art. But not everything goes smoothly. The sofa is accidently recovered in the wrong fabric and the coffee table breaks during the installation. Will Lara and the team overcome the hurdles? And what will the family think once the room is revealed? In the second space, Steph and Arleigh have a dark, awkward basement that needs a complete overhaul. The room has weird nooks, plumbing pipes, AC ducts and 70's ceiling tiles. It's an eyesore and this will be a huge design challenge! But Lara is up to the task. Lara and the team find worn-out furniture pieces, loaded with potential at yard sales, flea markets and estate sales. After everything is refurbished and repurposed, the team has to deal with a challenging installation. Will they be able to figure out a layout for this asymmetrical room? And will the family like it once it's revealed?
