Steve and Julie struggle to figure out the huge red slipcover. Julie loves the colour. They decide to start with the arms.
Laurie assigns the "homeworks." We finally get a good look at the kitchen, which is indeed a lighter shade of green, though in this light it looks more yellowy and the celadon Laurie chose has a fair bit of blue undertone. They have to put on as many coats of paint as possible so that the Kermit green becomes olive, not pea. Good luck with that. I think that colour is just going to get pea-ier.
MPDP helps Carter bring in one of the toy boxes to be stained, along with a tray for the ottoman.
Laurie says that Brian and Tracee need to prime and paint the new coffee table black. And they need to prime and paint the entertainment centre, with its new doors, cream.
MPDP rides Carter about whether the toy box and tray are the only things he's gotten done today. He says he's got another whole toy box outside. He also says he's done stuff for Laurie. He seems really good-natured. That should wear off after a few Hildi and Kia episodes.
Laurie runs off to rummage through the garage for a mirror, which apparently Julie okayed.
Frank tells his team to putty, sand, and stain the toy boxes. They're also to paint the tray the same colour as the walls.
Day Two. Laurie finds her team outside. Tracee's sitting on the coffee table, next to the entertainment centre. Laurie asks what they think of the stripes. They say they like them. Apparently, they did many coats of the Kermit green. Laurie thinks that the furniture looks amazing.
Frank arrives to hear Steve say they don't want "Frankie" to be upset with them. Frank says, "Frankie is not upset." Frink: "Frankie say relax." Frank continues: "Frankie is feeling perky...because you've done the boxes! You've done the tray." He's happy. Steve and Julie aren't sure whether the toy boxes need another coat of polyurethane -- there's only one thick coat. Frank thinks it will be fine, and maybe if there's extra time, they can do another coat.
Laurie says she's going to go get ready to remove the tape on the stripes, and asks them to get rid of some fussy little appliqué or medallion on the entertainment centre.
Frank and Steve haul in a rug. Frank wanted a nondescript rug to match their existing nondescript carpet. He didn't want it to stand out; he just wants it to cover some bad spots. The bumper to the commercial shows Frank in a very scary brown wig that's kind of on his head lopsided. It's really disturbing how different a head of dark hair makes Frank look. And with it on, he reminds me of somebody, but I can't for the life of me think who it is.
