DIY's Sweat Equity TV Show Features Our Carefree Home Renovation

It's been a long time coming, but after shooting an episode of Sweat Equity in April of 2011 it is finally airing tonight on the DIY network!  Our episode "Retro Redo" is scheduled to air at 10pm (9pm central) Wednesday, November 14th.  The episode covers the following projects we did shortly after purchasing the Care Free Home out of foreclosure:


  • Exterior "refresh" (paint, stain and landscaping)
  • Living Room Hardwood Floor Refinish
  • New hallway floors
  • Kitchen "refresh" (cabinet refinish, new counter-tops, appliances and sink)
  • Guest bathroom "refresh" (tile re-glaze)
A summary of the episode along with additional air dates is available on the DIY Network website.  Additional air-dates are scheduled this season if you aren't able to catch the episode tonight!

  1. I saw the episode last night and have to say that I love your home. I love the mid century modern homes and you have done such a great job in bringing such a wonderful home back to its original look. Keep up the good work

    1. Thanks Beatrix, we've made a lot of progress since the show finished shooting (as you can see from the blog). However, there's lots left to do! We have several new, big projects we'll be covering here in the next few months!

  2. My mother has now watched this episode twice and saved it for her adult daughter (me) since I am such a mid century moden fan. We just want to say we LOVE your home and we appreciate you going with the original purple:)

    Good luck with the rest of your restoration!

    1. Thanks Kira (and Kira's Mom)! Its truly been a labor of love and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Its really encouraging to hear from so many mid-century modern fans since starting the project. Thanks for watching the show and your support for the Purple!
