The ReStore team has been busy putting together an amazing lineup of DIY posts after wrapping our Earth Day Upcycle Challenge a few months back, and we're ready to kick things off with another challenge! Take a look at recent DIY projects, and find details on our next Upcycle Challenge below. You'll also find a few pieces that highlight the great things you can find at our Habitat for Humanity ReStore home improvement outlets!

The Earth Day Upcycle Challenge focus was to “give a chair some flair,” and participant Joey Ford did just that!

The challenge? Choose a chair from the ReStore and "upcycle" it by turning it into something new. Mark saw the perfect chair—and had the perfect idea to go with it.

Announcing the Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge

We're inviting up to 50 challengers to bring their skills and creativity to upcycle common items or materials found at ReStore
