Melissa and Jenna then go to the houses of the people who have most influenced them and offer their services. The hosts' idea becomes a reality owing to their own efforts, a team of competent individuals, and, sometimes, some outside assistance. The presentation is as upbeat as one could wish for, with a heartwarming tale about aiding people who have benefitted society as a whole. With a baby and a wedding on the horizon, a pregnant combat veteran and her fiancée are set to embark on the next chapter of their life. Melissa and Jenna aid this growing family by transforming their kitchen, living room, and impromptu nursery!
Nicole, their designer, and the cousins explore ideas for Katie and Lily. Jenna points out that because Katie like the color blue, they must integrate it throughout the project. Nicole suggests a color that Katie would like. They intend to install their pantry where the shelves were, figuring they could create a place for a coffee area because the couple enjoys coffee. They eventually decide on a blue kitchen.
When it came to providing storage for the growing family, the cousins had their priorities straight. Jenna also mentions that they need to lighten up the rooms because they all have dark paint on the walls. She suggests creating a banquet hall with plenty of seating. Melissa highlights the importance of leaving adequate room to maneuver. Nicole intends to eliminate the gas from the fire space. Katie seemed to dislike the gas due to safety concerns. As a result, they settle on an electric fireplace with a built-in magnificent hearth that simulates a real fireplace. Melissa brings in new fabric for the couple's family chair, which has a special place in their home.
Melissa and Jenna bring in James Mobley, a tremendously gifted artist, to transform the couple's guest room into a nursery for their lovely baby son. Katie's living room lacks natural light, so the cousins installed a series of wall sconces. The cousins intend to wrap Katie's nursery in hues that complement her blue, but also add some other tones to make it stand out. The cousins open up the kitchen, which drastically modified the area, with Brandon on the construction crew. Melissa and Jenna both thought that putting a hood, paneling, and molding would provide warmth, and texture, and elevate the area. Some viewers were even excited to see a familiar face like Brandon on the show. One of them tweeted: "It’s Brandon from @restoredtv ! Love him!! #TheGreatGiveback #restored #livetweetcrew #onhgtv #[email protected] @magnolianetwork @hgtv"

The ultimate revelation of the space had everyone in tears. The pair, who initially felt it was a dream, couldn't believe the transformation that occurred in just 6 weeks. They were moved to tears when they saw Melissa utilize a fabric she'd kept for years to change their family chair, which the pair plans to keep forever. The living room was completed with a slight change in the color blue for the wall and new lighting. The fireplace is not just contemporary, but also child-safe. Katie said that the woodwork in the room reminded her of New York, where she grew up.
Melissa and Jenna also made sure that the home office had adequate room for the pair to work at the same time. Coming to the kitchen, the couple was surprised to discover a photo of their dog on the wall, a cute coffee station around the corner, and a fresh coat of color on the wall. Big metal storage for pantry shelves has been replaced with two extra tall deep pantry spaces erected in the wall, with plenty of room for gadgets and baby items.
Fans can't believe the number of storage Melissa and Jenna could provide. One of them tweeted: "An organizer, movers and a year of storage?! #TheGreatGiveback"
