farmhouse inspired DIY projects

 

my guide to

shopping the ReStore

It’s no secret I love DIY’s and when I have a project in mind the first place I turn to is my local Habitat for Humanity Restore.

To be honest I could spend a whole day in there getting lost, and inspired by all the goodies they have to offer. And there is nothing better than knowing that, when I shop there, I’m giving back to my community.

So I thought it would be fun to take you all along with me on a trip to my favorite ReStore.

my first stop

at the ReStore

The first place I  head to when I get to the ReStore is the art section. If I can’t find a good piece of art, I know I’ll find amazing frames.

Frames can be so versatile and simple, yet make a big statement in your home. I especially love how you can use them for all seasons.

next stop: 

spindles made farmhouse candlesticks

The next place I have to check out is their old spindle section. These spindles are great to pick up for a simple DIY project like I did here! We turned spindles into candlesticks! Here’s how we did it…

cabinet door made coffee table tray

Now I don’t want to overload you with DIYs but here is one last idea. Most ReStores have a selection of old cabinet doors. You could do so much with these but my favorite is a quick coffee table or serving tray like the one I created.

For this project, all you need is a cabinet door and two drawer pulls, which are also sold in packs at the ReStore!

To complete this project, all you need is a cabinet door and two drawer pulls, which are also sold in packs at the ReStore!

I just used chalk paint for the cupboard door and spray painted the drawer pulls with a matte black spray paint. Once the paint was dry I attached the pulls on each side of the cupboard.

thanks for checking in!

I hope you have enjoyed these ideas, and  I hope it inspires you to check out your local Habitat for Humanity Restore. For more ideas make sure to follow me on Instagram.

I share my tips, ideas & simple DIYs often. Happy shopping!
