Upcycle Challenge : Stylized
Back by popular demand! The Toronto Fall Home Show is partnering with Habitat for Humanity GTA for the 3rd annual Upcycle Challenge. Local celebrity experts and emerging style, décor and DIY bloggers are invited to take part.
Armed with a $100 budget and a killer competitive streak, each participant is required to source and repurpose an item from any Habitat for Humanity GTA Store (9 locations). For 2014 we are pushing the style envelope, with five unique style clusters and 15 DIY enthusiasts.
A twist of ...Modern ~ Country Rustic ~ Industrial ~ Vintage Glam ~ Eco Chic
All entries will be prominently displayed at the Toronto Fall Home Show during show days September 18 - 21, 2014 at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place. The Grand Prize will be announced based on public voting. In addition the items will be auctioned off in support of Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area and ReStore.
New this year we have a new partner Rust-Oleum. Participants are required to use at least one Rust-Oleum product in the making of their final piece of work. Including brand names you trust such as Tremclad, Varathane, EpoxyShield, and Zinsser, Rust-Oleum’s indoor and outdoor products range from various types of paint (chalkboard, spray, glitter, metallic, textured, etc.) and stains to specialized coatings and sealants.
