Renovation on A Budget DIY

It doesn’t seem like there’s a way to get lots of the expensive touches we want for a fraction of the price, but there is.

Pin now and save for later!

I’m not talking about wholesale, warehouse, or outlet “discounts”. Nope. 

Renovation on a Budget Friendly Store

Habitat for Humanity has their own donation-based store called ‘ReStore’. Whenever people have leftover materials, a lot of them will donate it to Habitat for Humanity. Nice tax write off, and it’s much better than throwing it off in a dumpster or leaving it in the basement unused. My one stop shop and go to for a renovation on a budget.

It’s crazy how often they get large slabs of granite and pallets of materials. Obviously, they fly off the shelves like hot cakes.

Speaking of large quantities, I found pallets of this backsplash. I’m sure it would look incredible all over a bathroom.

Pallets of this one backsplash!

Other parts, they may not have a boat load of. These may be best in smaller areas, unless you know for sure that you can get the rest at a discount as well.

As you can see, they’ve got loads of flooring materials. I’ve mainly seen tile in the Habitats I’ve frequented, but they were not lacking in quantity whatsoever. Perfect amount for a bathroom renovation. ;

Very pretty bright tile.

They weren’t lacking in the hardwood department either. Both these colors are gorgeous, but the second would look amazing with a clean white theme. Or even the rustic/farmhouse look.

I’m obsessed with these. That price can’t be beat.

Crazy good stuff here, right? 

They’ve also got sooo many light fixtures, which can run unnecessarily pricey. Some of these may not be super modern, but they are dying for someone to give them the TLC they deserve.

Quite a few light fixture steals!

In this day and age, stainless steel appliances have become the standard. Houses with white appliances or black, may not look as nice or modern as their stainless counterparts. I know that comes with a hefty price tag, but Habitat’s got your back. Look, this is only $325.

So many people opt to re-paint their cabinets instead of buying new, which is a very smart idea. Though, if you’re looking for something different, ReStore can seriously hook you up.

They’ve also got doors, sinks, and modern fixtures to aid in your renovation.  

My favorite part is their materials, but they do sell furtniture, too. Their furniture is a little pricier than I’d want to pay, but it’s still an option.

      When I first discovered them, I has to go to every one within an hour radius.

  • LOVE that dark hardwood! I had no idea this store existed, and there are three within an hour drive of me! We are getting ready to do a bit of remodeling on our mobile home and I adore stainless steel. Thank you for sharing!

    • Definitely check it out! You can save so much money!

  • theterrificfive

    I didn’t know Habitat by Humanity has stores you can buy stuff in! I volunteered for them several times but never learned about these stores! Now I need to go to one so I can redo my bathroom tiles!

    • I once saw some gorgeous grey rectangular tiles, in ReStore. Their tile selection is pretty modern!

  • We re moving house soon. And some of these are awesome. I am not sure we have this brand but atleast i know what to look for..

    • Absolutely! I couldn’t believe deals like this existed.

  • I wish they had this store by me! I, unfortunately in this instance, live on an island so I would probably have to travel pretty far to find one. But if I ever get a truck and make a long weekend out of it, I will definitely look for a location in Florida. I have so many home update projects I want to do and I’m all about saving the most money possible! Thanks for this review!

    • A friend of mine in Orlando redid her entire master bathroom from ReStore finds. It looked Pinterest-worthy.

  • Wow, they have seriously nice stuff!

    • I honestly couldn’t believe it, either. Now, I’m addicted.

  • This is amazing! I will have to see if there is one of these stores around here.

    • Absolutely, check it out!

  • Woah! This is awesome! I didn’t know ReStore existed. Definitely a great post I’ll be referring back to!

    • Thank you so much for that!

  • I love ReStore. We are incredibly that we have two very close by. It is amazing the stuff that you can find. I am pretty sure I have never left that store empty handed!

    • Haha I don’t see why you would! Things go so quickly, being that the prices are incredible.

  • kayla8642

    Wow! These are great finds! I love the rustic dresser!

    • So do I! If we weren’t moving soon, I would’ve gotten it.

  • There’s a ReStore 5 minutes from my house but I’ve never been! I had no idea they have materials!!!! I have to go!

    • You need to go like, now! Seriously!

  • I want to go to this store! Ugh! I doubt they have one in Windsor,ON,Canada.. These are awesome finds!

    • Whenever you come to The States, check it out!
      Consignment Furniture stores should be in Canada, though!

  • YAAS! I got a chest from our ReStore that I updated. I love that place! Ours just moved into a bigger space and it’s on my list of places to visit while my kids are in school 🙂

    • Definitely a must if you can make the time!

  • Back in my design days, I saw so many steals in places like these. Someone would move into a house that the kitchen had just been redone to sell, but they don’t like it. They remodel themselves and donate basically brand new cabinets. Definitely worth a look for anyone updating their home!

    • That sounds crazy but at least they donate them!

  • I love these kinds of stores. we have them here, and you can get such a good deal!

    • I know! It makes me hesitate to buy anything new.

  • Love that couch!

    • Me too! It was gorgeous and looked new. I didn’t get the price, though.

  • I have to find this store. It really would be great for renovating my parents house.

    • Definitely! I included a link in the post!

  • I loooooooove the restore! The one here has some good finds. Back home we got like new lighting fixtures for loooooow!

    • They usually do! Light fixtures are crazy expensive! So glad you found an awesome deal!
