Hard working mom, Nicole Curtis is on a mission to create a master bedroom for mom Melanie in the final episode of the Lebron James Family Foundation house. The attic room turns from an overheated dumping ground to an air-conditioned oasis in just a few short days. Nicole comes up with a genius and inexpensive storage solution in the awkward space and in just one week, the whole house is finished. Time to bring the family in, this is a reveal you don't want to miss!
Two of interior designer Nicole Curtis' clients, Adam and Rachael, hire her to fully restore their newly purchased 1920s house. The couple is getting married and needs to move into the home in a month, so Nicole must work faster than ever to complete everything on time. First, she tackles the front entry and yard, adding some curb appeal to this episode of Rehab Addict.
Continuing her restoration of Adam and Rachael's home, interior designer Nicole Curtis moves her attention to the living room, where she must restore the beat-up hardwood floors and replace a set of built- ins that were torn out over the years. Nicole also takes a look at an unusual way to expand one of the small bedrooms and ends this episode of Rehab Addict by heading downtown to a tax auction, hoping to bid on her next big project.
Turning her attention to Adam and Rachael's bathroom, Nicole deals with the many problems that creep up while working with tile in an old house. When she hits a snag, Nicole must think on her feet and figure out a way to make her fixtures fit in the small space. As her deadline approaches and working hours get longer, Nicole begins feeling guilty for not spending more time with her son Ethan.
In this episode of Rehab Addict, interior designer Nicole Curtis is under the gun to finish Adam and Rachael's kitchen renovation while the two are away on their honeymoon. After tearing down the walls, Nicole discovers some cool hidden details but also some plumbing problems that throw a wrench in things. Nicole scrambles to finish everything on time, while hoping that Adam and Rachael will be happy with their new home.
Turning a duplex back into a single-family home isn't always easy, but that's just what Nicole wants to do. Working to return the living and dining rooms to their original layout, she must first figure out where doorways have been closed off and ceilings dropped. Plus, there's a gorgeous stained glass window at the front of the house that will completely change people's perception of the property once it's fixed.
Working to create a master suite upstairs, Nicole tries to figure out a way to incorporate the old kitchen pantry into a new master bathroom. Changing the floor plan can wreck havoc on original hardwood floors, but Nicole hasn't found a floor yet that she can't save. With a majority of the home's windows left broken from when it was abandoned, Nicole must track down the manufacturer to order replacement parts.
Nicole doesn't have much to work with in the back yard, but she's making the best with what she's got. Lifting up the garage to pour a new foundation beats the cost of building a new one from scratch. This house also needs a new roof, which is a first for Nicole on a project. Nicole picks a unique color to help make the house stand out in the neighborhood.
With work on the 4th Street house nearly complete, Nicole continues to fix up the neglected exterior. The decorative fish scales and siding need repair and the whole house deserves a fresh coat of paint. In order to give this house a second chance in the neighborhood, Nicole must also add some curb appeal by building a fence and taming the wild lawn.
Nicole is on a mission to save vacant homes from the wrecking ball and her latest project is taking on a boarded up and previously condemned home from the late 1880s. The basement is full of structural issues, from rotten support beams and a crumbling concrete floor to the need for a new staircase that meets building code. Also on Nicole's list is turning the tiny first floor bathroom into a spacious powder room.
Turning her attention to the kitchen, Nicole must get creative and figure out how to update and reuse stock cabinets that were in the house, turn old doors into new counter tops, and repair the pine sub-floor that she's obsessed with keeping. She must also part with a previous project after it's sold to a new owner.
Nicole begins work on the interior of the Case Ave house and is faced with a living and dining room full of gorgeous woodwork and original pocket doors that have been painted over the years. It'll take hours and hours of sanding and stripping, but Nicole just can't leave them the way she found them. Once she sets her mind to something, there's no stopping her.
Nicole takes the dark and dim front entryway and opens it up, removing soffits, repairing original stained glass windows, and hunting for salvaged parts to rebuild the fabulous staircase. She must also find a way to repair the front porch floorboards to keep them from falling off the foundation.
While waiting for the Minnehaha house to sell, interior designer Nicole Curtis is hired by one of her clients to rehab his cluttered, compact kitchen into a useable restored space for him and his family. Given a tight deadline, Nicole soon finds herself overwhelmed but finds relief when her mother comes for a visit in this episode of Rehab Addict.
Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis takes on another design project while waiting for the Minnehaha house to sell. This time it's her client Ellen's colorful sea-themed bathroom that needs fixing. To match the 1920s style of the rest of the house, she has to bring it down to the studs ? everything but the door must go.
Nicole's next project is restoring an historic mansion in the Summit district of St. Paul. Unfortunately some key rooms have been completely ripped apart and her first task is to rebuild the gutted powder room from scratch. With the original materials no longer available Nicole gets creative with custom paneling and salvaged tile and creates a brand new room with a 1904 feel.
Nicole turns her attention to taking the pink and gold kitsch out of the formal dining room. Restoring the floors, swapping out sconces and repairing the stained glass windows take the room out of the 1970s and back to 1904. Meanwhile, at another of her houses, a buyer pulls out at the 11th hour causing Nicole to make some quick decisions.
Nicole cleans up the swimming pool and converts some garage space into a much needed changing room area. Tapping into the sewer line causes more mess than she bargained for while she also finds some time to take some swimming lessons.
Nicole takes on the living room and study, restoring the rooms to their former 1904 glory by polishing up the original woodworking details in the rooms. She stains the damaged floors in the living room to cover up years of neglect and discovers a shocking surprise in the study. In the midst of renovation, Nicole finds the time to swap out her boots for high heels for a women's health charity event.
With the Dollar House project an official 'Go', Nicole's first project is a major one: lifting the house to fix the crumbling foundation. Even though this means the brick chimney has to go, Nicole finds a way to reuse the old brick and begins to add a little character back into the living room.
Moving to the interior of the Dollar House, Nicole demo's her heart out and focuses on the disgusting kitchen space and adding a half bathroom to the first floor (evicting a few pigeons along the way). Once the new space is framed out, everything seems to be falling into place? until the water is turned on and Nicole finds out she has some leaky pipes.
Restoring the first floor of the Dollar House continues as host and interior designer Nicole Curtis uncovers hardwood floors throughout the living and dining room areas. The dining room hutch is still intact, but there's a whole new fireplace mantle to build. Nicole also takes on a DIY project to prove that a pile of scrap wood can become a thing of beauty.
Heading up to the second floor, Nicole takes on the bathroom, one of the house's dirtiest and grimiest rooms. She brings it down to the studs, adding clean lines with white subway tile and re-purposes an old dresser into one of her signature vanities. Since the house was lifted, the front porch has been floating in space, so Nicole tears it down to begin rebuilding a new one, giving the house an inviting and classic look.
With the Minnehaha house still sitting on the market, Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis decides to put her own house up for sale hoping that it will sell faster. However, before she can do this, she must first give her garage a much needed makeover and remove asbestos from her basement. Not wanting to spend too much, this interior designer must find low cost solutions to get the job done.
Preparing to put her house up for sale, Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis turns her attention to the cluttered basement and devises a plan to update the space while also keeping the unfinished, industrial feel it would have had when the house was built. Never one to let anything go to waste, this interior designer finds a way to repurpose her old garage carriage doors and turn an old soapstone sink into the centerpiece of the room.
Nicole repairs the hardwood floors in both living rooms of the Harriet Project and searches for replica tile to begin restoring a fireplace in the downstairs unit. With the crumbling plaster walls replaced, the front entryway is ready for a grand transformation. Nicole's son Ethan gets a babysitting job.
