Wednesday: Do it Yourself Challenge!


We are back to my laundry room this week, and I’ve been doing some searching both online, and at the stores for gently used items. I figured it would save me money to go with second hand materials so that I don’t have to spend a bundle. If you choose to move in this direction for your own projects, this may take some time because you may not find what you are looking for right away. Be patient in the process, and search everyday until you find the products that are the perfect measurements and style for your space. Here is a list of places both online, and in-store, where you can find great used deals:

Habitat for Humanity ReStore – are home and building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building materials. There are many locations all over the city. Look out for a store near you.

Marketplace on Facebook – a part of the Facebook app that allows people to buy and sell new and used items online. It is also a great place to negotiate prices, too!

GUFF Furniture Store – a range of vintage furniture & goods from Scandinavian to art decor offered at a neighborhood shop in Toronto.

The Singing Lady Consignment Emporium – a treasure trove of gently used quality home furniture, accessories, decor and unique and eclectic items. From frugal to extravagant, fab finds for any budget in the Etobicoke area.

These are just a few places you can check out to find some really quirky items at a reasonable price to use for whatever project you have in mind. I am still searching for two double door wall cabinets, a utility sink and cabinet, and a counter top. I will keep all of you in the loop when I find what I am looking for. Happy Wednesday everyone!
