Now that Lois' daughters are grown up and out of the house, she says she feels closer to them when she sees their pictures, which cover almost every wall and shelf in the den.

While it's important to personalize a room with family photos, Nate says that when there are too many, you don't really see any. "I want to take the focus off of everything and put the focus on what really matters," he says.

With just 24 hours to transform this crowded space, Nate sends Lois away so a crew from Lowe's can begin clearing out the room. Meanwhile, Christina and Nate start paring down the pictures. "I use a Post-It process to organize what stays and what goes," he says. Anything that can go into a photo album or a storage bin gets marked with a Post-It note.
