Friday evening I participated in the Habitat for Humanity Restore Restyle Event. You can read more about the event and the rules here, here and here and you can see my room here. The event had close to 200 in attendance, raised over $6,000 for Habitat for Humanity and showcased how, with a little creativity and effort, you can transform something old into something new.
Each designer had a 10 X 10 space to decorate using only restore items and we each had a different type of room. The talented couple below are Kerri and Trevor Morrical of Morr Creations and they designed a family playroom for the event.
I’m sharing some images of the finished room but please like Morr Creations LLC on Facebook to see all of their amazing before and afters and to ask questions about how the items were made.
Below is a picture of their awesome room.
One of my favorite pieces was this airplane made out of a ceiling fan and dryer ducts, among other everyday items.
Another of my favorites was this American flag made from trim pieces and craft store stars. They made the two benches from a twin bed headboard and footboard.
Crafted from an old entertainment center, Kerri and Trevor said this was one of their most intricate pieces.
Can you tell what this teepee is made from? Skis and tablecloths! And the bow is made from PVC pipe that was heated in order to bend. Kerri made the tom tom drums from baskets, tin can lids, and fabric scraps.
This roulette wheel is actually an old bicycle tire…
…and this kids chair is a pullout keyboard and mouse tray.
They made this puppet theatre and playhouse from an entertainment center. The pullout doors were formerly for CD/DVD storage.
Part of the competition included incorporating the mystery item, this plastic switch plate cover, in a creative way.
Trevor and Kerri created this fairy house by using the mystery item, along with other electrical outlet covers in various sizes.
To really appreciate their work, you really need to see the before images of each item. Like them on Facebook at Morr Creations, LLC to see all of their before and after images.
Come back later this week when I’ll be sharing the other 5 rooms.
