Ellen DeGeneres is launching a new furniture design competition series with cable network HGTV.

The show, “Ellen’s Design Challenge,” will follow six contestants as they design and build furniture within 24 hours.

“I’m so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture,” DeGeneres said about the six-episode series that’s slated to premiere in 2015.

“One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced,” she explained.

“It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that’s a story for another time,” DeGeneres jokingly added.
