ReStore Recap: A Month of Inspired DIY!

Becky Engen
Posted by Becky Engen on 1:36 PM on February 18, 2019

This past month on the ReStoration Corner Blog has been all about inspired DIY projects. Whether it's a calendar of crafts, a home filled with reused materials, or a Q&A with our avid-DIYer and staff member Jan, we've got some great inspiration just for you!

Video preview - Who inspired you to DIY or upcycle?

An Interview with Jan Hagerman [VIDEO part 1]

We sat down with Jan Hagerman, New Brighton ReStore Assistant Manager, and asked her about who inspires her to DIY, and how she became involved with WCCO. Jan is a great advocate of upcycling, re-purposing, and bringing awareness to the the mission of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

The white Vita Huset house.

Vita Huset (white house) family transforming a ReStoration

Earlier in January, a mother-daughter duo invited the ReStore team for a tour and luncheon at their recently “ReStored” home. Lovingly named “Vita Huset,” which means “white house” in Swedish, Marie (mom) and Kari (daughter) spent countless hours hunting, buying, building, and transforming a home in Corcoran. With a little help from their handyman Ray and items from ReStore, estate sales, and other second-hand sales, they beautifully brought this old 1956 home back to life!
