Do it Yourself!

Do it Yourself, or DIY is all the rage. From Pinterest to HGTV, it’s everywhere! Some people call it junkin’- when you take an old, tired piece of furniture or used materials and rehab it into something wonderful.  A little elbow grease, paint and ingenuity can go a long way to create a DIY success!

Here’s an idea straight from the Habitat for Humanity of Smith County ReStore using an old cabinet door, if you can believe it.  This cabinet door is made of wood, solid wood, the kind of wood you rarely see anymore, yet can often be found at our ReStore!

With a little cleaning, paint and embellishment, this is the cabinet door now. A beautiful home decor sign!
