If we whispered that Nescafe was our cottage 'wood stain' of choice, would you rush to put the kettle on? Confused? Well don't be. But coffee -- as wood stain? Bizarre as it sounds, it's not quite the unusual proposition you might initially think.

While the bedroom transformation was successful and went (for the most part) without too many hitches, the same can't be said for the rest of the cottage transformation. Indeed as work progressed in other zones, project drama truly escalated. Little did we know what lay in store.

It's all very well being inspired by Thailand and adding Asian influences via sand-coloured walls (rather than actual sand on the floor) or adding medieval tapestry cushions (rather than create a Robin Hood fortress) but you have to ensure you don't go too far.

Colin and Justin cast a queer eye for the straight guy by encouraging Canadian dudes to make design decisions and create the perfect man cave.
