The mom who got wallpaper in her Mom Cave after telling Beth she hates it wrote a blog post about the show experience. She said in the comments that the entire value of the room was taxed (hopefully not the portion they had to pay for) - nice touch, especially since the mom cave probably adds nothing to the sales price they could get for the place. http://centraljerseyworkingmoms.com/2013/05/08/episode-where-are-they-now/ "These days, I often am asked if I still like the room. And I have to say – I still hate wallpaper, but not my wallpaper. In fact, aside from adding more family photos and moving a chair to the other side of the space, the room has relatively stayed exactly the same. It has become my room and is affectionately called the “mom cave” by the kids, my hubby and everyone who visits. So one year later, my room remains the same and quite honestly, I believe it will remain this way for some years to come. I look back fondly on that week and despite suffering a wicked tax slap this past tax season, it was worth every minute."
