ReDesign 2016: We Are So Impressed!

As summer comes to an end so does ReStore’s annual ReDesign by ReStore customer contest.

This year we received more than 50 great entries which made the Habitat for Humanity volunteer marketing committee’s job very hard; they had to pick a winner. The volunteers were asked to vote for their favorite customer redesign project that incorporated items purchased at the ReStore.

ReDesign 2016

This year the marketing committee chose Shari Mamone’s dining room redesign for the grand prize. Shari has won the opportunity to run through the ReStore for two minutes grabbing whatever she can.

WHAT? That’s right, Shari Mamone won a two minute shopping spree in the ReStore!

Shari Mamone's ReDesign

Shari’s beautiful room contains an old china cabinet and several scruffy old chairs she purchased at the ReStore. After Shari’s hard work, elbow grease, sanding, painting and reupholstering these pieces of furniture look fresh and fabulous!

This is what Shari’s chairs looked like “before” her redesign.

Just for fun, we added a new component to this year’s ReDesign competition. We let our Facebook fans choose their favorite redesign by voting with their “likes.”

Kelly Mangus won the Facebook fan prize with her double stacked redesign. She created a lovely storage tower from two old nightstands. A $50 ReStore gift card will soon be burning a hole in Kelly’s pocket.

ReDesign 2016

2016 was the seventh year for ReDesign by ReStore. Every year we grow more and more impressed with the creativity and ingenuity in our community. We thank our donors and customers for making this goodness possible and we look forward to doing it again next year.

Now get busy redesigning!
