One of my newest blog obsessions is A Beautiful Mess, a delightful mix of style, home decor, DIY projects, vintage loveliness, and more. If you haven’t visited Elsie yet, go do it now… {well, read this post first, then go; but promise you’ll come back}. 
Elsie just issued a super fun creative challenge — Project ReStyle
The premise is simple: (via A Beautiful Mess) 
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!

I took the pledge, and you can, too! Just cruise over to the Project ReStyle page and leave your name in the comment section. Then kick off 2011 with some major creativity. Easy peasy! 
Now, who’s with me?

  1. >Wow – This sounds like something I could really get into. I'm all about reworking what I already have and restyling is the way to do it. Heading over the the Project ReStyle page now. – Katy

  2. >This is so cool! Thanks for sharing! And please tell me that dog walking gets easier. My hubby taught our other dog to walk, so I was shocked that they literally refuse at first! I had no idea. I'll keep you posted on my progress. ; )

  3. >Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello! I'm loving your site. I just added you on Google and Twitter. Can't wait to see your Project ReStyle creations!!!
