Are you a flea market floozy or yard sale junkie? TLC's Trading Spaces wants to take your trash and turn it into a treasure! We're looking for "pack rats" who could use a little design intervention. Trading Spaces, produced by Banyan Productions, provides two pairs of friends with a professional designer, a carpenter, and 48 hours to redo a room of their choice. But there's a catch -- they have to switch houses, and they have no say in how their own room will look. We're seeking brave and vibrant homeowners for upcoming episodes. The rules are simple: 1. Two people per team, 2. Rooms must be at least 12 feet x 12 feet and 3. Houses must be within a 15-minute drive of each other. To apply, e-mail email@example.com. Please include a contact number and the city you are writing from. A full application will be e-mailed to you.
