When items break and have no use, the first instinct is to discard it. A lot of the everyday things come and go, but what about those big items, like pieces of furniture? Our ReVive Centre is where we rebuild, refurbish and revive furniture to create unique and stunning DIY projects. Not only are we helping keep useful products out of landfills, but we try and prolong the life of them so they can still be useful! The ReVive Centre is the first of its kind, where we can take our donated items, up-cycle them, and help raise funds for our home building projects.

A beautiful display cabinet all cleaned up and good as new! Some coats of paint and some cleaning makes this piece of furniture brand new!
