It is my goal with "My [re]claimed Home!" to share some of the favorite DIY projects, organizational tips and home improvement repairs from the Habitat ReStores' staff and volunteers. It is also my goal to learn tips and design ideas for easily upcycled pieces. So please... if you've got suggestions or have found an easier way of doing things, let me know in a comment. I'd love to pass it along to some customers who have also caught the DIY/upcycle/repurpose bug.
or this wedding dress!
Each Habitat ReStore has a different list of things that they accept and don't accept, but most include hardware, building materials such as doors, windows, lumber, etc., housewares, light fixtures, linens, antiques, and more.
The point is- there is always something for EVERYONE at the Habitat ReStores. A lot of people just don't know it yet. It is my hope that this blog will inspire people to check their local Habitat ReStores before buying new, because most likely you'll find just what you're looking for. And you help a great cause.
