Home Improvement Show Host Plays With Power Tools

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You learn something new every day and the host of a new home improvement show says the big lesson she’s learned while hosting is that are a lot more types of power tools than she realized.

Kelli Kirkland Powers is the host of HGTV’s Takeover My Makeover, which allows homeowners to do their own home fix-ups with just a little help from designers.

Powers says “it’s empowering to take charge of a room” with a drill or a hammer without being forced to fit their home to an expert’s opinion.

She admits it’s difficult at times to keep her mouth shut or not get involved when it comes to making decor decisions for especially heinous rooms.

For instance, one man wanted a safari theme that only featured zebras. Powers says the team hinted that there’s more than just zebras in the jungle.

Still, Powers is doing all that’s in her power to shut her trap because “redecorating a room is like going to a beauty saloon – you know what you like and what fits for you no matter what others say.”

Takeover My Makeover debuts May 6.
