Join ReStore's Spring Into Summer DIY Contest

Kick off summer with a festive DIY contest!

ReStore is excited to announce our summer upcycle challenge: the Spring Into Summer Contest! We want you to share your best summer DIY project featuring ReStore items. Think yard/lawn art, birdhouses, garden boxes, patio sets, etc. - anything with a spring-summer vibe. Here are the basics:

  • Use the form on the contest page to register. After you sign up, you will be emailed a $50 ReStore coupon to shop for your project.

  • Visit a ReStore location to shop for the perfect piece to transform. You can also shop for the materials to update an item you already own. Think creatively! 

  • Do your thing! Upcycle your ReStore item or something you already have by giving it a fresh new look for the warmer days to come. The item can also be a way to liven up your lawn. 

  • When your project is complete, email before-and-after photos of your DIY project. You can simply reply to the email with the coupon. We also invite you to share a few sentences about your project. (Limit one entry per person.)

  • The top three winners will receive Visa gift cards (first place: $100, second place: $50, third place: $25).

Submit your entry
now through June 10th, 2023!
