These walls are hideous. These cabinets -- I just don't even know where to start. Reporter: Fortunately a handsome cowboy is here to save the day. Mean Shane Golan, a superstar Texas contractor and owner of venetian homes. All right. So, candy, here's what I want to do. We'll paint the cabinets. We'll change the hardware. We're going to get you some plumbing fixtures that don't come off in your hand then we'll definitely do something about the floor and definitely do something about these walls. Most of this stuff are things can you do on your own on the weekend. A lot of stuff at Lowe's.
