Re-love Project 2014

Do you remember last year, I was involved in the Feast Watson Re-Love Project? Well it’s on again this year and the re-loved items are now available for purchase via eBay. As before, all proceeds will go to Salvos Stores.

It’s a great project to showcase what can be done with second-hand pieces of furniture that many would not look at twice.

As part of the Feast Watson Re-Love Project, eight lucky Australians will have the chance to take home a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture with all proceeds donated to Salvos Stores.

The project launched in May this year and eight talented designers across Australia have been busy upcycling worn timber furniture items into unique designer pieces, kindly donating their time and expertise to the campaign.

From shabby bedside tables to an old tripod and even a rocking chair, each talented designer has provided inspiration and breathed new life into old furniture. Each item is marked with the designer’s unique creative style, and the outcomes speak for themselves with eight truly exceptional pieces of furniture.

Salvos Stores Chief Executive Officer, Allen Dewhirst, is grateful for the generous donation and excited to see the results from the auction.

“Salvos Stores are excited to once again be the charitable beneficiary of the Feast Watson Re-Love Project. Last year was a great success and we are thankful to both Feast Watson and the designers who generously donate their time to the project. We couldn’t help but love an environmentally conscious campaign which gives second-hand furniture a new lease on life. We are very excited to see the outcome of the eBay auction,” Dewhirst said.

Feast Watson’s Brand Manager, James Fisher, says the talent and creativity displayed in the Re-Love Project has been outstanding.

“Our eight designers have blown us away. They have each done an incredible job in creating something truly special. Wood and timber accents are a hot trend at the moment, so it’s been exciting to see eight different timber pieces be transformed over the course of the campaign. The end result is a collection of amazing design driven pieces,” Fisher said.
