Day, who lives in Leawood, is host of DIY's "Bargain Mansions." She takes old, neglected homes in the Kansas City area brings them back to life.

"Any age of home can be a neglected house," Day said. "It doesn't matter if it's a hundred years old or 20 years old. There are all kinds of bargains around here, from out in the country to downtown. The Hyde Park area is one of my favorite areas."

Day says her other favorite neighborhood is old Leawood. 

Day will make appearances at the home show on Saturday and Sunday, using some before-and-after photos of area homes she has renovated.
