Missed the fun? Here’s how it went:

1. Rescue from ReStore

2. Jazz it up!

3. Post it on Facebook (@CVReStoreCR)

Starting March 1, come into ReStore and purchase items to upcycle and renovate. Post pictures to Facebook (and tag @CVReStoreCR) 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!

To participate in the contest, make sure your Facebook posts are visible publicly, or message the Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore Facebook page with photos of your work. 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!
