Students from Oceanside High School took a tour of Goodwill’s After Market Facility in Otay Mesa. During the tour, they were given the opportunity to choose one unsellable item to take back to their school and upcycle.

Check out what they did with these items no one wanted – you will be amazed. You will also have the chance to buy these items at – all proceeds will benefit Oceanside High School.

Blog 4.20.16 (1)Jasmine (senior) and Kaylee (sophomore) took a broken, rusty bicycle and completely refurbished it. It is now a working beach cruiser – it even looks brand new. These students worked really hard to remove all of the rust and dirt, they hammered out all of the dents, and they even primed and painted the bike. Very impressive.

Blog 4.20.16 (1)Deanna, a junior, took an old sewing cabinet that was missing one leg and turned it into a modern, Asian inspired side table. She replaced the legs with an old wine rack, painted it and added a shelf from recycled wood.
These students have inspired me. A little elbow grease can really go a long way.
