Guest Blog: 2LittleSuperheroes | 12 DIY ReStore Projects

We are excited to begin a series of guest blogs from partners throughout Wake County. Throughout the coming year, these blogs will focus on the various aspects of our organization. I’d like to introduce our first guest blogger: 2LittleSuperheroes. Danielle, a mom to superhero-loving boys, is a DIY enthusiast and blogger in Raleigh, NC. When she’s not stepping on Legos, she chronicles her projects and family’s activities at 2littlesuperheroes.com.

Danielle’s entry:

If you are like me you have pinned a ton of craft pins on Pinterest; but haven’t completed any of them. Part of my problem is finding the time to go out and scour flea markets, craft stores, thrift stores, Craig’s List, and yard sales for the supplies you need to make all these fabulous ideas. But Habitat Wake ReStore is a one-stop-shop for all your Pinterest projects.

ReSpace Lightwall Pavilion Purchased by Pittsboro B&B

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Congratulations to Dave Clark and Lisa Piper, owners of The Small B&B Cafe in Pittsboro, NC. They had the winning bid for the Light Wall Pavilion in the auction that ended June 11. Eventually, the Paviliion will be turned into one of the B&B bedrooms! To view the Light Wall in its new habitat, visit their Facebook page.

Designed and built to showcase reused materials, the Light Wall Pavilion is the culmination of the 2012 ReSpace design competition.  Habitat Wake took one of the winning designs and, with the help of countless volunteers, built the Light Wall in a 48 hour blitz.

The pavilion includes a variety of materials donated or salvaged from around Wake County.

The sale of the Light Wall Pavilion will help Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore further the mission of Habitat Wake while also showcasing what can be done with reuse materials. 

For more information about the ReSpace design competition, click here.
