Admit it: You’ve got that house. The one where guests always gush over your great taste and even better ideas, from furniture and gallery walls to paint colors and pattern-mixing. Maybe you’re even taking on projects for family and friends, selling your furniture flips, or sharing DIYs on social media. If you’re dreaming of taking your design skills to the next level, there’s a free and easy way to start.

Overstock Trade is a new program from the online home furnishings retailer that’s made just for designers — and yes, that includes you. Whether you’re a DIYer, remodeler, home stager, or hobbyist, Overstock Trade has the tools to help you build your portfolio and get your designs in front of more people. Overstock Trade is for all design enthusiasts, but you can join with your professional credentials if design is more than a hobby for you. If you’re not a pro, just leave those fields blank! It’s free to join (pending quick application approval), and the perks? They’re amazing.

The most fun part of Overstock Trade might be Design Boards, where you can dream up new projects or display works in progress. As you browse Overstock home furnishings and decor, click the heart icon by each product to add your favorites to a Design Board. Head to your board to see everything together, and add or subtract items until you’re happy with the final look. You can even add your own image, like a collage of your picks or a full-room mockup. Then it’s time to publish the board on your Trade Page and show off your skills!

You, and anyone who views your page, can also shop right from the Design Board. This is where being an Overstock Trade member literally pays off: Trade members get incredible shopping advantages, like free Club O membership, 15 percent off eligible items, dedicated trade customer support specialists, and an extended 60-day return window (because sometimes projects have long lead times!). When you recommend Overstock products — in email, SMS, or on social media — you’ll also earn 5 percent in Rec Rewards when someone makes a purchase. And right now, Trade members will receive $20 in rewards when they share their first Design Board with #OverstockTrade. (Promotion is subject to change.)

The more Design Boards you create, the more your Trade Page will become a living document of your style — and the more rewards you can earn. We’re willing to bet your calendar will be full of clients in no time.
