Anyone who signed up for this home makeover show knew they'd potentially end up with something they didn't like. But we think it's safe to say these homeowners had no idea how bad it could get — until they opened their eyes, that is.
The first rule of living in a small space is to limit the patterns in your design, because they tend to make rooms feel even smaller. Need proof? This red and white room by Doug Wilson speaks for itself. Watch the reveal here.
Even though the homeowners were more than clear that they wanted their fireplace to remain untouched, Wilson felt it needed a new look to pull the room together. Unfortunately, the two parties were never able to agree on this issue. Watch the homeowners' reaction here.
A rela beach cabana is nice when you're on, you know, a beach. But no one wants a river of sand in their living room. Too bad that's exactly what Hildi Santo-Tomas gave these homeowners, along with tent-inspired walls. Watch the whole process here.
Even though the homeowners loved this Safari-inspired room by Wilson, since they never got a chance to go on a honeymoon, we have to politely disagree. The zebra print walls and palm trees are a little eccentric. Watch it go down here.
When Wilson picks a theme, he goes for it. Even if that means turning a previously white and simple kitchen into one that's green, orange and brown with "Caribbean flair" — which isn't exactly what the homeowners were expecting, if you can imagine. Watch the reveal here.
Not only did Santo-Tomas glue straw onto the walls in this living room, but she also painted the ceiling pink. Why? We're not sure. The homeowners requested a kid-friendly room, so we doubt this constantly-deteriorating decor was what they had in mind. Watch the reveal here.
Some would argue Santo-Tomas left her mark on every room she touched (see before mentioned sand and straw). But that's literally what she did in this dining room when she painted a portrait of her face on the walls. See the room in progress here.
A bloody tarp "art project" was hung up on the walls of this room, while Santo-Tomas painted the rest of the room a blood red. Not pictured: A coffin-shaped spice rack, because it couldn't get any worse. Watch how it goes down here.
When it comes to functionality, this room might come in last place out of the entire series. Not only were the walls painted black (what a pain to paint over), but Santo-Tomas also hung all of the furniture from the ceiling. Watch the reveal here.
Not only did Santo-Tomas pull up carpet and leave the floors concrete in this kid-friendly home, but one of the homeowners said she's changed some diapers the same color as the walls. We can't disagree. Watch the big reveal here.
Even though these homeowners were very specific and said they under no circumstances wanted an Asian-inspired room, Santo-Tomas made up her mind and went with her likes instead. Watch it go down here.
We admit: This room looks relatively tame, but the homeowners were split on Laurie Smith's design. The husband loved it, but as for the wife ... not so much. What's worse than a design no one likes is one that splits a couple in disagreement. Watch their reaction here.
When the homeowners repeat "I've just got to get used to it" over and over again, it's not a good sign. They thought half of the room Genevieve Gorder designed for them was country and the other half was modern — and don't even get them started on the painted ceiling. Watch the reveal here.
