ReStore Donations Transformed:
Students from Missouri State University’s interior design program re-purposed ReStore donations into fresh furniture designs. For the third year, Habitat for Humanity has partnered with the MSU students for this class project through the “RePurposing with the ReStore” program.
Interior Design Class Project:
The students spent twelve weeks developing and executing their interior design project under the guidance of Professor Marciann Patton, Senior Instructor of Interior Design at MSU. When the class was complete, the students gained real-world experience presenting their designs to Habitat staff and volunteers. The students donated their completed works back to the ReStore for sale.
The students presented creative projects; showing the before and after as well as the design inspiration for each transformation. From tables and chairs, to benches and tables, there were examples of creativity all around. The re-purposed ReStore donations were quickly sold the day after the class presentations.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore:
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore generates more than a million dollars annually to support the Habitat for Humanity mission of providing safe, decent, and affordable housing.
