Recall last year when I blogged about the Mooresville, NC Our Towns Habitat ReStore's Restyle event HERE and HERE? Well, it's that time again and it's your opportunity to show off your DIY skills.
The ReStore ReStyle Design Challenge is a great way for DIYers to showcase their resourcefulness in repurposing and ‘upcycling’ items into fabulous home décor. Featured designers will be competing for three awards: the Judge’s Choice Award, Best Use of the Mystery Item and the People’s Choice award.
Here's a look at some of the past winners.
2012 Winning Space
2013 Winning Space
Applicants should have a knack for seeing unusual uses for ordinary items, and the artistic ability to integrate transformed items into daily living spaces. This event highlights the broad range of household goods, furniture and other items available at our two ReStores (Mooresville and Cornelius). The event was built upon the 3 R’s of the ReStore: ReUse, ReCycle and RePurpose, and raises awareness of how, with a little bit of ingenuity and elbow grease, we can save our environment, beautify our homes, and help families in our community!
The deadline to apply is March 4th at 5pm. For more information and to apply visit http://ourtownsrestore.org/restore-restyle-2014.
Oh yeah and guess who's a judge this year. Yep, ME!! Yippee! Happy Friday!
