During the commercial, Frink's very excited to see the promo for next week's episode, in which one homeowner physically takes down the other during the reveal. Mind you, he can manage to get something out of watching Jerry Springer on occasion, too, whereas I would rather have gum surgery.
The bumper back into the show is Doug stuffing MPDP through a window in Goofball Gulch. Frink idly wonders why Doug happens to have a pair of leather chaps. Me: "I'm sure he just rented them from a local biker."
Okay, Doug's room. The walls are bright yellow; the ceiling is still white. The room has been divided roughly in half by a wall that, in plan view, would be shaped like a very wide, short H. The wall is painted a very strong red. In the half of the room furthest from the door, the head of the bed has been placed up against the wall, with one of the tulip panels hung horizontally above it. There are two new swing-arm lamps mounted on either side of the bed with broad, conical shades of silver metal. The bedding itself is pretty curious: there's a red wool coverlet and bedskirt with accent pillows in red and yellow. The red pillows each have an appliqué on them which is a yellow square, with a smaller black square on top of it. The yellow squares are attached at random points. On the coverlet, they're centred in the middle of the bed. The yellow pillows have red and black squares. The hell? It just looks very arbitrary and weird and has nothing to do with the rest of the room. Also, there are no night tables or nightstands, and no room for anything like that either. Maybe you could put some tiny shelves down the wings of the wall or something. Opposite the end of the bed is the dresser, newly stained a darker colour. It looks better. It's got two new lamps with silver bases and white shades. On the wall opposite the windows, there are two large silver-framed mirrors which Doug took from the bathroom, apparently.
On the other side, the white sofa is up against the wall, with the second tulip panel hung horizontally above it. There are two large orange pillows on the sofa, each featuring a black square sewn at a random point. There is a reading lamp in silver metal at each end of the sofa. In front of the sofa, on the red wool "rug," is the bench Ty made. I think they should have painted or stained the legs black (like the original), but it looks pretty decent. Opposite the sofa is the armoire taken from the living room. There's also a small cube-shaped ottoman that looks like it's covered in some kind of green fabric. It's certainly an improvement over the previous room. Apparently this house is designed in such a way that you can see into the bedroom from the front door, which seems like a pretty poor design to me (not to mention terrible feng shui) so I think Doug's idea of creating some kind of architectural divider in the room is basically a good one. It took up quite a lot of the budget, but drywall is time-consuming and messy as hell (and drywall taping is not a skill easily or quickly mastered), so I suspect the only reasonable alternative was MDF. Dividing the room into sitting and sleeping areas is also appropriate for these homeowners and the way they use this room. I personally wouldn't like having the bed facing away from the door as it is in this room (and that's also bad you-know-what) but these homeowners probably won't care. The dresser set looks nicer stained the darker colour. I'm not crazy about the Golden Arches colour scheme, personally, but it's bright, energetic, and cheerful. I don't think breaking up the paintings and turning them sideways has done the "art" any favours. They look too much like brooms on the horizontal. I also think they benefitted from being presented in multiples. Doug's lighting choices were nice, though, and well-coordinated. And Ty did a nice job on the bench. I could live without the bedding and cushions; they were a big "whatever" for me.
