There are many ways it pays to shop resale. The thrill of the hunt, the satisfaction of an amazing deal, and—unique to our community—the lasting impact it has on local families in need.
For those first-timers who haven’t experienced how gratifying resale flip projects can be, to the seasoned DIY’ers, here are some seasonal ideas just in time for the fall.
Cup o’ Creativity
Here’s an idea that you can involve your little ones with. Renew an older mug purchased at one of our GRACEful Buys stores, and plant a faux succulent to adorn a windowsill or vignette. Drill small holes at the bottom for unlimited options such as herbs, flowers, or an aloe plant to keep your skin silky in the colder weather.

Create a plate focal point that is as unique as your personality. Retro and vintage style saucers are always in stock at both GRACEful Buys locations, giving you ample opportunity for fun, inexpensive conversation pieces that can easily be updated or added to throughout the year.
Give sleepy candle holders new life with a coat of chalkboard paint purchased at your local hobby store. Dress them up with a coat of metallic paint to match your autumn and Christmas centerpieces, or opt for rich, bold colors to create a high-contrasting statement all year long.
That lonely cutting board lying in the corner can prop up your recipe book or iPad. Listen to a podcast or audiobook or radio while preparing a delectable pie, or prop your recipe for easy reference.
At GRACEful Buys, you are only limited by your creativity to repurpose and rejuvenate furniture pieces at a fraction of the price.
Perhaps most rewarding about your project is that it allows GRACE to meet tangible needs for families facing hardship. Every dollar generated from our resale store supports emergency relief and translates to warm meals, life-changing medical care, education and hope for the future.
We hope you’ll be inspired by our collection! Send your #upscaleresale furniture DIY project to us for a chance to be highlighted on our social media pages!
