Ultimate Upcycle Challenge: Take a Seat presented by Rust-Oleum in support of

Do-gooders, take note! We’ve recruited 10 of Ottawa’s top media personalities, designers and tastemakers to turn drab into fab for a cause. Armed with a black box of Rust-Oleum products and a small design budget, each participant will upcycle a pre-loved piece from ReStore into a swoon-worthy seat that’s fit for a second chance at love. Bid on your favourite seat at our silent auction (100% of proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region) and rest easy knowing you’ve made a difference by going green and giving back. It’s design, with a conscience.

You can bid on chairs upcycled by Delaney Holley, Diane Deans, and Lois Lee - among others!
