The Toronto Fall Home Show and Habitat For Humanity, GTA have once again partnered to push local designers and DIY experts to the limit in the 3rd Annual Ultimate Upcycle Challenge: Stylized. Armed with a $100 budget, access to Rust-Oleum's products, and a killer competitive streak, each participant sourced and repurposed an item from the Habitat For Humanity ReStore (nine locations).
Stylized Categories include: A Twist Of...Modern, Country Rustic, Industrial, and Vintage Glam.

Love an upcycle so much you want to take it home?

Guests will have the opportunity to bid on their favourite upcycled items at the Toronto Fall Home Show, which takes place September 18-21, 2014 at Exhibition Place. The completed upcycles can be viewed at Booth #240. All proceeds from the auction will be used to support ongoing work at Habitat For Humanity, GTA.
