July 1st- Cottage Chic Guestroom - Sally Meyer loves the look of cottage chic design and wanted to make up her guest bedroom in the same style.

About Frank Fontana:

Frank Fontana is currently the star of HGTV's Takeover My Makeover, but television audiences may recognize Fontana as the real “Italian Stallion.” The underdog winner of ABC’s Martha Stewart-themed reality competition The Great Domestic Showdown. On the surface, Fontana’s macho and muscular exterior caught people off guard. Who would have predicted this New York native could out-bake, out-decorate and out-design his TV rivals – winning the show? But that’s exactly what happened when Fontana walked away with the grand prize.

From ABC, Fontana quickly moved to TLC where he landed a featured role on the one- hour documentary-style unscripted program "Faking It". With cameras rolling, Fontana spent a month mentoring a woman from Texas on how to become a domestic goddess. With Fontana’s help, the woman won the competition.
