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!


Chair Makeover

Our very own CEO Jack Wilson is here today to share a DIY project with us! Jack recently came across a chair in a our ReStore and saw some potential for it to be much more than a chair. With some paint and imagination Jack converted a regular chair into an adorable plant holder!

What you’ll need:

ReStore Road Trip

This great article from Habitat World magazine shows readers what an impact ReStores around the world are making. ReStore is a great place to find anything from paint to furniture. The choices are endless.

   Article written by Phillip Jordan

With more than 840 ReStores across the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia – and Europe’s first slated to open in Belfast, Northern Ireland – there truly is no telling what you’ll come across.”

The great part about shopping at the ReStore is when you do, you are directly supporting your local Habitat for Humanity.

“The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates build homes within their communities. In 2011, U.S. ReStores raised enough money to build the equivalent of 770 homes, keeping more than 149,500 tons of material out of landfills in the process.”
