• ReStore and RePurpose

    | August 30, 2011

    If you follow my pins on Pinterest, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of projects that re-purpose items typically discarded after too much use. Imagine my delight when I was assigned to Habitat for Humanity’s local ReStore warehouse as part of my law school’s Service Day.

    Habitat for Humanity created ReStore to help raise funds for their overarching mission. According to their web site, Habitat’s ReStore outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public. Most stores focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials, and appliances.

    ReStore outlets accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

    If you’re looking to tackle a new Do-It-Yourself project, be sure to first check for a Habitat ReStore near you.

    ReStore outlets provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Habitat’s community improvement work.

    With the right supplies from a Habitat ReStore, you could tackle projects like these (click image for link):

    Desk From an Old Door.

    Wall Rack Made From Old Door Knobs.

    Ottoman Made from an Old Tub

    Media Console Made from an Old Dresser
