I planned a trip to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore since we hadn’t been in a while. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular—sometimes I just like to get the creative juices flowing. And isn’t a rule that you always find the coolest stuff when you’re not even looking?
Not only will you find some awesome deals, the money raised funds the construction of more Habitat homes in the community. If you’ve never heard of these ReStores, they basically sell used and surplus building materials. You save money and divert materials that would otherwise wind up on a landfill. It’s a win win!Their tile selection almost always has me drooling. You’d really have to luck out to snag enough tile for a big project but you could definitely find enough for a smaller project like some back splash for the kitchen or bathroom.
I think the minty shade of these shutters caught my eye more than anything. You know how I feel about mint!Used shutters are great decorating materials. I’d use mine to collect mail or display cards.
We had a fun little trip looking around but didn’t end up bringing anything home.
Do you get inspired by used home design pieces? Would you have snagged any of these items?
