DIY Network Partners With Good Housekeeping To Design The Upstairs Guest Suite For The Sixth Season Of “Blog Cabin”
NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — For the third consecutive year, DIY Network’s Blog Cabin, television’s first interactive home building series, teamed up with Good Housekeeping, one of the most respected brands in the country, to design the upstairs guest bedroom of the ultimate vacation home. After a record-breaking six million viewers voted on all aspects of the renovation — from kitchen tiles and bathtubs to window treatments — on DIYNetwork.com, host Chris Grundy and his team completely renovated a 4-bedroom, 2-bath 1880s Cape-style farmhouse in Waldoboro, Maine. In a special one-hour finale of the sixth season of Blog Cabin, premiering on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. ET, Grundy and his fellow DIY Network hosts share their expertise and know-how as they install all the winning features, as well as recap the home’s incredible transformation. Sara Lyle, Good Housekeeping’s lifestyle editor, and her team, also join Grundy as they use the viewer choices, along with some local finds, to add the finishing touches to the upstairs.

“Each year, we look forward to partnering with Good Housekeeping,” said Steven Lerner, DIY Network’s vice president of programming. “Their ability to complement our viewers’ choices, along with their keen sense of style resulted in a beautiful space capturing the look and feel of a New England getaway.”
Good Housekeeping combined DIY Network’s viewer and blogger choices, including a Rustic Refined color palette and Lodge Living theme, with items found at local antique shops to create a warm, eclectic, country look for the guest suite. Blog Cabin’s upstairs bedroom renovation, inspired by mid-coastal Maine, is featured in the October issue of Good Housekeeping, currently on newsstands.
