Reuse Rockstar Competition- Fall 2016 Launch

by Aliza Heeren, Marketing and Green Homes Fellow

It’s that time of year again! We are excited to announce the launch of our fall Reuse Rockstar competition!

Reuse Rockstar is a friendly competition held to showcase all of the creative ways EcoBuilding Bargains customers transform materials they found at the store into beautiful and innovative pieces. Last year we saw doors turned into benches and headboards, a desk turned into a dining room cabinet, and so much more! Check out these submissions from last year for some inspiration:


This crafty hanging file bench was submitted by Mary Jane Dunlop, and re-purposed from an old headboard.


Heather Salvator constructed these beautiful rolling carts for her salon out of cabinets from EcoBuilding Bargains, and added wheels and wooden tops to finish them off.

Check out our Facebook albums to see previous submissions, or look on our pinterest page for more ideas!  When your upcycle project is complete, send photos to Facebook or to to submit your project. The winner will receive a $100 gift card to the EcoBuilding Bargains store and will have the opportunity to showcase his or her project in a video on our website! Please submit all of your reuse projects by November 10th. We can’t wait to see what you create!
