Evening Magazine changes spaces

Seattle, WA --Evening Magazine and the Seattle Home Show are combining forces with Seattle's top designers to redecorate viewers' rooms for a special show called "Changing Spaces" which airs on Wednesday, February 19th at 7:00 PM on KING 5.

Just like TLC's popular home improvement show, Trading Spaces, the Evening Magazine version will feature top designers, working with about a thousand dollars, who have just 24 hours to make-over boring or cluttered rooms while TV cameras roll. The biggest difference is it's all local.

Woodinville designer Shari Orts of Sapphire Studios will make-over a tiny and very crowded room shared by three grandchildren in Bothell. Seattle's Melinda Sechrist of Sechrist Designs will over-haul a Tacoma kitchen painted Pepto-Bismal pink. Keith Miller of David Weatherford Antiques and Design will take on a home office that an Edmonds woman shares with a loud washer and dryer.

Home Depot, IKEA and California Closets will contribute labor and products. Cameras will be rolling when the winners get their first look at their new rooms.
Evening Magazine's "Changing Spaces" airs February 19th at 7:00 PM on KING 5 TV.
