ReStore’s Upcycle Challenge is a chance to flex your creative muscles, show off your DIY skills, and take part in ReStore’s green mission.

Here’s how it works:

1. Rescue from ReStore

2. Jazz it up!

3. Post it on the Facebook event page (coming soon)

4. Win!

Starting March 1, 2023 come into ReStore and purchase items to upcycle and renovate. Post pictures to the Facebook event page as you work your magic, and stay tuned for the big reveal of the winners on April 1! 1st prize is a $100 credit to ReStore! After the contest is over, you can donate your project to ReStore to help raise funds for safe, decent, affordable homes in Linn & Benton counties, or keep it for yourself!

Share as many photos of your process as you’d like, and note details on the steps you took! If you don’t use Facebook, you can e-mail photos of your work to community@cvhabitat.org with the subject line “Upcycle Challenge”

We just can’t wait to see the creativity of the ReStore community!

Project photos must be received by Friday, March 31 to be eligible to win.
