In stepped Associate Decorating Editor Anne Turner Carroll to help Scott tackle his makeover to-do list: maximize space, introduce organization, and add style. They tackled the challenge by first knocking out one of the built-in cabinets to allow for a longer desktop. Next, a coat of paint on the remaining built-in, in the same color as the walls, better unified the area with the room. Anne Turner chose magnetic chalkboard paint for the back wall, adding color and functionality.
