They're Ready to Trade Spaces . . . Again!
Trading Spaces makes it's long-awaited return to TV this spring, but some original cast favorites (and new faces) are already giving fans a sneak peek of what's to come in the reboot. Here are their best behind-the-scenes snaps so far:
Ty Pennington knows how to make his new castmates feel welcome — by sharing an ear of corn, of course. The returning carpenter chowed down with newbie Joanie Sprague.
The handywoman isn't new to reality TV, however. She was the runner up on cycle six of America’s Next Top Model.

Besties Off Camera
Host Paige Davis and designer Doug Wilson don't just hang around on set, they're also fellow crooners after hours. "Went to Brandy’s Piano Bar for the first time last night. It won’t be my last," Davis captioned her kissy face photo.
It's no surprise to find the TV host at the musical spot. She spent her down time after Trading Spaces starring as Roxy Hart in Chicago on Broadway.

TS Time Warp
Pennington, handyman Carter Oosterhouse, and the show's cinematographer Robert Marish took a break under the signature tented carpentry station to ask where the time's gone: "It's only been 15years.." Oosterhouse captions, adding the hashtag #wegotold.

"I know we don't look like each other but we're family!" designer Vern Yip captioned a sweet photo with Pennington and original designer Laurie Smith.
While Yip has been a TV regular since the end of the show, Smith stayed out of the spotlight and focused on being a mom (see photo 10).

The whole cast got together to film a reunion special that will also air on TLC in spring 2018. "In case you missed it, these bad a** OG Trading Spaces peeps are reunited and returning to TLC," Davis wrote alongside the group photo. "The reunion was a hoot! Can’t wait for you all to see." (Watch the first trailer here.)
Trading Spaces returns to TLC after a 10-year hiatus in spring 2018.
