Stage Décor By:
The High and Low Contest
Created by La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings and Décor and Presented by Ottawa At Home Magazine: Back for a fourth year!
The contest challenges visitors to guess which room carries the higher priced items. Both rooms are dressed in high style furnishings to show that money doesn’t always buy style. One lucky winner will win $10,000 worth of La-Z-Boy furnishings!
#613DIY: Inspire, Renew, Restore
presented by Rust-Oleum Canada®
With help from local design and DIY expert Sarah Kidder, visitors will use Rust-Oleum products to bring pre-loved housewares new life and purpose. Participants can bring their own items from home or choose from several tester items onsite courtesy of Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, which will be available on donation. Additionally, there will be several professionally upcycled items donated and completed by Sarah Kidder to be auctioned off onsite, with proceeds going to the Greater Ottawa Habitat for Humanity.
