Scavenger Stylists week 2: scavenged play
(Read about Week 1 here)
As you may have heard, two teams of All In A Day listeners are competing to refurnish two rooms, for next to nothing. One team, Gimme Shelter -- that's Simone and Heather -- are redoing a kitchen and dining area for a Youth Services Bureau house. The other team, Trash Troopers -- that's Suzanne and Ron -- took on the apartment of a client of the Ottawa Mission, who had recently come from Nigeria to Ottawa, with next to nothing for himself and his 9-year old son. Using their own scavenging abilities, wheeling and dealing, and relying on other tips and tweets from listeners who are giving things away...They have been refurnishing these rooms with style.
And for this week, the challenge was to scrounge up something for play. True to style, the teams went all-out. First, have a look at the work of Team Trash Troopers:
Impressive, huh? Now check out the work of Team Gimme Shelter -- OK, so it's just a spray-painted canvas, but the point is that the team gathered up supplies for the Youth Services Bureau kids to create their own cool graffiti art.
