FUNctional Over Formal
Many of us have been spending a lot more time at home and less time entertaining. To create spaces that will inspire you to make formal more functional, these popular designers repurposed traditional formal living and dining rooms into spaces that could be used each and every day, not just on special occasions.
Get the backyard the entire neighborhood will be talking about. We teamed up with Barnco Woodworks to bring you outdoor furniture, fire pits and pergolas that are the envy of your street. These ideas left us inspired to spruce up our yard or front patio and take it to the next level: the ultimate backyard.
Upcycle Challenge: Dresser Transformations

Old dressers and bureaus were transformed into new, more useful household décor or furniture! The sky is the limit for our DIY experts' imagination!
Looking forward to 2023: Challenge participants are given a credit to the Philadelphia ReStore, and turn donated items into home décor you couldn't find in a store. Come get inspired for your own projects, vote on your favorite piece, and if you don't want to get your won hands dirty - bid on these fantastic, repurposed dressers for your own home - all proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity!
