Project ReStyle

Project Restyle is a just-for-fun creative group focused on ReStyling damaged, unwanted or unusable goods into fresh, beautiful pieces. Project ReStyle is Rachel’s and my New Years Resolution! We are going to create weekly projects to give life to used items. We’ll make fashion pieces as well as home decor projects! Anyone can join in the fun….

Project ReStyle Guidelines

1. You must use unwanted, damaged or unusable vintage or used items to ReStyle. One of the big purposes of the group is that it encourages green living and is budget friendly. You can use items from your own closet/attic that you no longer love, thrifted finds or hand-me-downs. 

2. Take a Before & After photo of your ReStyled project. It’s that simple!

3. Share your creative work on your blogs and in our Flickr Group. If you don’t have a Flickr account, it’s free to join. We’ll be choosing favorites each week to share on our blogs, so you’ll want to be sure to join the fun. 

4. You can create fashion, home decor or gift items. There are no limits on what types of items you can ReStyle! Be creative and make items you know you can really use! 

We want you to join us this year! If you’d like to be a part of Project ReStyle, Here’s how! Leave your name here in the comments to ‘pledge’ to be a part of the challenge, join our Flickr group to share your creations and post on your blog each time you make a new project. FUN. 

Project ReStyle is the ‘love child’ of Rachel Denbow and Elsie Flannigan. Everyone is invited to join in the fun! We will have twenty six special guest designers in 2011 (see schedule and links below. the schedule will be continually updated with links to projects.) PLUS we will each be featuring favorite projects from our Flickr Group each week on our blogs.
