Plot Synopsis

Each week a host and a team of experts meet a couple who find themselves stuck in their quest of making over a room, tackling a once-in-a-lifetime event or repurposing that favorite antique. Whether the couples are married, best friends, sisters or mother/daughter, the host and experts guide them through a series of clever ideas, renewed recipes and surprisingly simple do-it-yourself projects as they build to the big reveal.

Soleil Moon Frye replaced Paige Davis for Season 3, which premiered on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 9am ET/PT, as OWN showed two episodes each week: a new show at 9pm immediately followed by an encore presentation of an earlier episode from Season 3.
