Many of the light fixtures donated to the ReStore are beautiful and ready to hang in your home.
Some need a little extra love and attention.
Our clever customers see the hidden potential in these donations. They use their creativity and good old-fashion elbow grease to turn out-of-style light fixtures into beautiful adornments for their homes.
Here are just a few of our favorites.
