MPDP wants to know how Edward did the room for $818. D'oh! If that's all it cost, I think he could have spent a little bit more. Like, for starters, instead of stealing their ceiling fan, buy one. Or how about spending the money to install doors to the bathroom/dressing area? (Not that Amy Wynn would have had time, probably.) Or best of all, buy some real art. To have $182 left over is Gen territory -- though, to be fair, I suspect Edward had budgeted more for furniture than he had to spend, and the room doesn't look skimpy or half-finished. Edward says he wanted to prove the point that you can do a room for less than $1000 and make a dramatic change. Er...isn't that always the premise of the whole show? How is this different? He says that a lot of money was spent of paint for the walls and furniture. He says that even though the lambrequins make a big statement, they take only three yards of fabric each. They agree that Amy Wynn did a great job, and MPDP says the headboard is quite clever. She says Edward's painting is really quite good. I guess she's seen so much bad art by Laurie that anything semi-competent looks spectacular in comparison. Edward says he wanted to focus on the Buddha thing because it's important to Jill. MPDP says he gave Craig and Jill an adult space. He hopes so. MPDP says the curtains are really nice, as was Amy Wynn finishing all the carpentry on Day One. Edward: "We may have to try that meditating again." Frink: "What? Medicating?" Me: "No, meditating. Medicating only helps the carpentry situation when Ty's on." MPDP and Edward pretend to meditate.
Fast-forward sequence, and then MPDP brings in Jill and Craig. Jill says she smells incense. She opens her eyes and looks very surprised and pleased: "Wow!" Craig: "Oh, it's you, Jill." She makes a little fuss about saying "Oh my goodness" instead of "Oh, my God." She says it's gorgeous. Craig says, "It's so Jill. They did well. I'm totally shocked." I can't tell if he likes it for himself or not. He says he had no idea what to expect. MPDP points out the new dresser. Jill loves it, and loves the colour of the walls. MPDP mentions the new lambrequins. Craig says he was worried about the colour but says they matched the rest of the house -- the living room and the hallways -- perfectly. MPDP mentions the relocated ceiling fan. They didn't notice that. Craig asks Jill about the bed, commenting that they actually have a bed now. Jill thinks the bed is gorgeous. They turn and notice the new drapes over the entryway to the bathroom, and Jill says it doesn't even feel like her room: "I feel like I'm in a hotel." MPDP thinks that's good: "It's like a retreat!" She asks if they like the painting Edward did. They're very impressed that he did that "by hand." MPDP confirms for Craig that all the sewing was done for the room too. Maybe he imagines that you can buy lambrequins at Wal-Mart, but I'm pretty sure you can't. Craig: "Good job."
