Habitat’s ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public While every ReStore outlet is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances.
ReStore resale outlets accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

I love going there to see what they have. I am always looking for shutters when I go there but the lady that is always working tells me they go fast if they get any in. So for now I know I can go there and get cabinet door fronts. Lately I have been using them to make chalkboards.
Clean them up a bit before you get started.
Tape off the chalkboard area. Apply a base coat of Kilz to the area you want to use as the frame.
Paint the frame the color you like.
I had to do several coats of red and only two coats of pink. I think I will spray paint the next one that I do.
Apply the chalk board paint, about two or three coats.
Embellish however you like.
This was part of the dessert table at Zac's party and I am excited to hang it in his room now.
And the pink one is a late birthday gift for a niece.
