Tune in one hour earlier this Sunday night at 9/8c for the season finale of  HGTV Showdown. Former Showdown champs Vern Yip and Angelo Surmelis team up with carpenters Anthony Gilardi (team Vern) and James Lunday (team Angelo) take on this disjointed and dated kitchen/mudroom.

How will Vern and Angelo tackle this challenge? Will they add new flooring? Remove the wall dividing the two spaces to create one large kitchen? Bring in new cabinets or new appliances? What would you do to update this room?

Looks like they’ve got their work cut out for them! The homeowners have a long list of improvements they’d like to see (shocker!) but the design teams have limited time and resources to make their magic happen. Trust me, the transformations are incredible — you’ll have to see it to believe it!

While you wait for the new season of Showdown to start, let’s have a little fun! Head on over to the Showdown blog to flex your funny bone and tell us how you’d caption this photo:

Alright, you asked for it and you got it!  The whimsical Circus Tent Window Treatment that Design Star season 1 runner-up, Todd Davis created on this episode of HGTV Showdown was such a hit that we’ve asked him to share the instructions. So, gather up some 2x4s and a ton of fabric and check out the step-by-step instructions on Todd’s blog, Epic Spaces. Or watch a quick video here showing how it came together.

Looks like the circus is in town! What a clever way to create a play space that can easily be folded away when not in use.

Not only is Todd a creative guy in front of the camera; behind-the-scenes he’s been hard at work on his upcoming book, Handy Dad, which will feature 25 projects that are cool enough to please kids, simple enough to be created by not-too-handy dads and safe enough to earn Mom’s stamp of approval. The publisher, Chronicle Books, estimates Handy Dad should be on a bookshelf near you by early summer 2010.
