Anitra Mecadon, the bubbly and fiercely fun host and designer from DIY Network's 'Mega Dens' is sharing repurposing ideas for everything from old doors to fishing rods. She's contributed to HGTV’s All American Handyman, HGTV’s Behind the Build Dream House, HGTV’s Behind the Build Smart Home, HGTV’s Raise the Roof College Challenge and more. Whether she’s dangling from a scaffold or breaking down a concrete wall, Anitra’s rock ‘n’ roll approach gives her an edge not usually found in most designers.

Tara Dara makes magic out of discarded objects she finds on walks through her neighborhood, and is crazy-good at sewing. She also studied faux finishing and mural painting, raku pottery, photography, and even Play Doh. Tara shaved her head for St Baldricks Day 2014 to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research. She's shared her expertise with The Rachael Ray show, sewing ideos for PBS, various DVDs, online sewing videos, and as one of Bob Vila’s Bloggers.
