Meryl, great to see you. Switch gears, and design dilemma solving, new book is out. And it's today, and flee market fabulous. Using furniture and finds from flee markets to create rooms that only look like a million bucks. Take a look. Stef and early have a common design dilemma. What to do with their dark, dank basement with exposed pipes, a frightening cellar, and an ill-placed bar. We don't know what to do with the space down here. Reporter: That's why my talented team and I are on the case. I think this is a great opportunity to show you can work with what you have. Reporter: No matter the design dilemma, flee market fabulous has the answer. What to do with unsightly exposed pipes. Hide them in plain sight, painting the same as the wall, and news plywood and cold paint. And dumpster diving came in handy when I discovered this door in a rubbish pile. Flip this around, and where you put your purse at the bar. Made a great base for a new bar. Took the nook where the bar was, and transformed it into a cozy day bed area with a chandelier made from an old wheel at a flee market. You see wagon wheel, I see chandelier. And this scary space was changed into a wondrous wine cellar. This is not our basement. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but it was worth every minute. You warned us. Reporter: Now meet John and Melis Melissa. They don't know where or how to build the bedroom of their dreams. The furniture is the exact same as his parents. In the exact same place. Reporter: They bought his parents home and never did anything to make it home. I like color. I like traditional style zblp. Reporter: Their furniture has good bones, we used paint and hardware to make it better. Use the existing bed to make it taller. Use aluminum poles to give a lift, adding a canopy for a little romance to the room. I love that Victorian bench in the trunk. I have to do the sit test. They could use a relaxing sitting area. What about this unique piece I femme for, or fell through. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. I'm so horrified. You break it, you buy it at a flee market, so we did and replaced the wicker with an upholstery job creating a comfortable bench. And added broad stripes to the floor with porch paint, and capped it off with personal art. And voila. Welcome to your new master bedroom. Get in there. Oh. Wow. My god. Oh, my god. Wow. More evidence that no matter what your budget or your space, it's always possible or flee market fabulous. Yes. That really did happen. That wicker -- You bought it, right? I did. Only $80. Thankfully. Incredible. I couldn't stop watch. Thank you. Well, good, there's lots of easy tips. Check it out. You can read an excerpt from the book on goodmorningamerica.com on I can't moyahoo!.
