Tori Spelling has to be one of the hardest working women on TV. I’ve lost track of the number of shows she’s had over the years! Now she’s got another one called Cabin Fever that follows her and husband Dean McDermott as they fix up their summer cottage in Ontario.
The show was taped last summer before Dean’s cheating scandal, so sometimes it’s kind of poignant to see how happy the family seemed to be then. Their four young children Finn, Stella, Liam, and Hattie are on hand to “help out” with some of the projects.
I was excited to see how they would fix up the dark and dated cottage for their family. But they kinda lost me when they stained the old hardwood floors blue in the first episode I watched.
The idea was to “bring the lake into the house,” as Tori put it.
They have a fairly large “family bathroom” designed with their four kids in mind:
They repurposed salvaged wood for the vanity:
I really like the red cabinets in the kitchen:
They turned metal Min-O-Life bait buckets into pendant lights over the island:
Dean trained as a chef, so they built shelves into the island for their cookbook collection:
Have you been watching the show? What did you think of the makeover? Are you digging the “lake blue” floors? To see the rest, go to GAC for all the photos by Darren Goldstein and check the Cabin Fever schedule.
