Season 2, Episode 5

The Rue Lafayette Project

Araceli Kopiloff bought an old building that once housed a mortgage company with the dream of converting it into a chic cafe and boutique called Rue La Fayette. Contractors estimated that she'd need $180,000 to complete the renovation, so Araceli decided to take a bite out of the budget by recruiting two friends to help her turn the building's foyer into a cozy welcoming area for guests. Together, their goal is to tear out a wall to open up the space, rip out and replace the tile flooring and create a counter out of a pair of old doors. To add to the madness, the women have only three days to finish the project before a preview party they've scheduled.
